Philip Sutherland is an American news writer stationed in Moscow since the war; while there he falls for a Russian ballet dancer, Marya Lamarkins, who, he finds out, learned English because she fell in love with him. They marry, only to find that the Soviet nation which gladly collaborated with the Allies against Hitler has become a paranoid police state in peacetime. Sutherland is forced to leave without Marya, but he's determined to get her back, whether it be through proper channels, or through dangerously improper ones.Written by

This was Kenneth More's last supporting role before his success in Genevieve. See more »
During the scene in the ballet theater, two Soviet Army officers bearing flashlights search through the audience looking for a doctor. They shine their light on Sutherland and apparently identify him by his epaulets as a medical corps doctor, but in fact, the epaulets indicate nothing but his rank as a colonel. A medical emergency in such a situation would have been addressed in the usual manner - by a public notice over a loud speaker. See more »
A Beautiful Romance between an American and Russian
"Never Let Me Go" is truly Clark Gable's last romantic movie. It shows the hardships on how an American reporter and a Russian ballerina must endure in order to marry and leave Russia. The movie shows how the Russian government interferred with the romance. In real life, Russia would hve done worst things to stop the romance, but this is a Hollywood romantic movie in the 1950's.
Clark Gable and the beautiful Gene Tierney make a beautiful couple and you route for them to escape and live happily ever after. This is a great movie to see on a rainy day or any day. It is on video.
