MGM studio chief Louis B. Mayer quickly rushed this movie into production to cash in on the popularity of the newly discovered Greer Garson, who had just triumphed in Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939). But despite this, the movie was a box office dud, and was all but forgotten until finding a new life on television, where it has remained a favorite for 60 years. See more »
Near the end of the film, when Jeff and Linda are pulled over by the motorcycle cop, in the long shot, their car has a tall, fancy, sculpted radiator cap. But in the closer front (studio) shot, it is missing - as it would have probably obscured Greer Garson's face. When they subsequently arrive at the judges house, the ornate radiator cap is back in place. See more »
This is a true Classic Film from 1939 and both Robert Taylor and Greer Garson were very young and just starting their careers with MGM. This was a very stupid story that portrayed plenty of Martini Drinking and I think the director and producer did the same while working on this film. Robert Taylor,(Jeffrey Holland),"Killers of Kilimanjaro",'59, fell in love with Greer Garson,(Linda Bronson Holland),"Random Harvest",'42, and had plenty of up's and down's with their marriage. Lew Ayres, (Schuyler Ames),"Love Boat",'81 was also deeply in love with Linda and was going to marry her and his good buddy, Jeff stole her away from him. There are background scenes of the New York World's Fair of 1939, and the plot goes around and around like an old time Merry-go-round. Billie Burke plays the mother to Jeffrey Holland and does a very comical role, with the high voice she used in the Wizard of Oz, 1939 as the Good Witch. Some of the friends of Jeffrey say that his eyes look like Rainbows and changed color every once in a while. Try to REMEMBER, this was a 1939 film and just take it from THERE !
