Caroline Mason, on vacation with her father Mr. Bliss in Idaho, has fallen in love with gaucho Paco Del Valle, the two who plan to get married. The problem is is that she's already married, for five years, to New York publisher Anthony Mason, who couldn't go along on this trip since he had to work. Caroline admits that she loves Anthony, but she believes she is no longer in love with him. Conversely, Anthony still loves his wife and he believes she truly still is in love with him. This situation is somewhat déjà vu, as rather than follow the old adage "Absence makes the heart grow fonder", Caroline tends to forget easily those with who she has lost contact, including Anthony. This situation is reminiscent of one two years earlier when on vacation in Florida with her father, Caroline was ready to marry Paul Martindale. But Anthony, who had more than a sneaking suspicion of what Caroline was up to, decided to come to Florida to outmaneuver the game that Caroline and Paul had concocted ...Written by

When Caroline is writing a letter to Anthony to explain that she wants a divorce, the letter is shown as "Dear Anthony, There is" then she starts crying. She decides to sprinkle her tears on the letter for dramatic effect, and when the letter is shown again, another word has been added to the letter, but Caroline had not written anything else. The letter now reads: "There is something" Caroline never wrote the word "something." See more »
This is absolutely my all time favorite movie. I saw it first on AMC, and taped it the next time it was on. I watch it at least 2x a year.
Anna Lee is just perfect in this role. Watch her roll her own cigarettes! Ronald Colman is dreamy and his dry humor is just over the top. Caroline's father is rather droll -- we don't HAVE fathers like this anymore. The end of the movie, when Caroline has not yet decided not to leave drags a bit, and is a bit forced for these days (we just don't understand train travel!) but is funny nonetheless. I know this has only been given a 6.5 star rating, but this is a 10 star movie in MY book!
