10 March 2004 | by rainbowwatersSee all my reviews

This was a decent film. Though this is not the best film that any of the actors ever did. The plot is fairly predictable but it is okay.

Franchot Tone's fake accent was amusing and seemed to come and go. While I much prefer Jean Harlow in comedy she does well enough with drama. Cary Grant was okay but why they cast him as a Frenchman I'll never know.

My main gripe with the film was using 1930's clothes for a film that was supposed to take place during World War I. While it is not that obvious with the men's clothing, but the women's clothing really stands out. Not having period clothing really takes away from the film. You would think that a wardrobe person or the producers or director or someone would have caught how out of place the clothing is.
