One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by MCA ever since. Its earliest documented telecast took place in Chicago Thursday 19 March 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2), and its tasty title slowly but surely made it a popular local favorite around the country; it first aired in Phoenix 11 May 1959 on KVAR (Channel 12), in Los Angeles 7 October 1959 on KNXT (Channel 2), in Johnstown 27 October 1959 on WJAC (Channel 6), in Asheville 20 December 1959 on WLOS (Channel 13), in Omaha 31 December 1959 on KETV (Channel 7), in Grand Rapids 18 January 1959 on WOOD (Channel 8), in Columbus 3 February 1960 on WBNS (Channel 10), in Detroit 5 February 1960 on WJBK (Channel 2), in Philadelphia 14 March 1960 on WCAU (Channel 10), and in Pittsburgh 18 September 1960 on KDKA (Channel 2).

I missed the first five minutes of this film when I saw it on tv in the late 1980's. The interaction between Carroll and Brent make it a classic film of the 1930's. I have waited for years for it to come out on VHS, but to no avail. Reluctant love is truly a great theme and one that is well treated in this film with the two great matinee idols of the depression decade.
