The film premièred in England before it opened in the U.S. In summer 1942 it was warmly received there as a welcome respite from the grim wartime news. See more »

Look at that very handsome man. I wonder who he is. I don't think I've seen him around before. I thought I knew all the handsome men in this village.

I hate to speak ill of any movie made before my time that's regarded as a classic and is an AFI award winner(# 77 on it's 100 funniest movies list),but this film just did not resonate with me at all.I found the plot utterly ridiculous.The two leads were incompatible.I hate to use the word "stupid",but it's the only word I can muster for the film's ending.This was my first viewing of any film starring most of the cast here,and while I'm sure they were great in other films,there was just no magic here,at least not for me.I can think of a few films that are more deserving of a placement in the above mentioned AFI list than this.
