Goofs

It's supposed to be 1944, but the first exterior view of the Astor Hotel shows two adjacent film theatres, the Astor and the Capitol, playing We Were Strangers and Scene of the Crime, both of which premiered in New York City in July 1949. A few minutes later, another view shows the Astor playing Melody Time, and the Criterion across the street playing Easter Parade, both of which premiered in June 1948. See more »

Claudette Colbert, a star to end all stars!
7 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Claudette Colbert is the only reason to watch this made for television movie. She looks fabulous and steals every scene she is in. Ann-Margaret, on the other hand, is miscast and chews the scenery up with her hysterics!
