Jack E. Leonard,
During the latter days of WW2 an American Lieutenant (Berry), accidentally falls out of an airplane that he was on and falls into German territory. He is taken in by a Baroness (Gabor). She is taken with him and doesn't want him to leave, so she doesn't tell him that the war has ended.

I received this movie in a pack called "50 all-star Movies" for $18 (45 cents each). This classic farce was a vehicle for a stable of TV sitcom stars to score some summer work. What a DELIGHT! Ken Berry (F-Troop / Mayberry RFD) as the Hapless American. Eva Gabor (Green Acres) as the scheming baroness. Werner Klemperer (Hogan's Heroes) as the jealous mayor. And a fine supporting TV cast including Hans Conried (Snidley Whiplash) and Jim Backus (Gilligans Island / Mr Magoo). OK, so the screwball twists don't reach the comic mastery of BLAZING SADDLES or BRINGING UP BABY, and the sets are definitely TV budget, but I said its a CUTE little movie, not Oscar material. If you find it in a dollar bin or a friend's DVD pile, by all means enjoy yourself some evening.
