According to IMDb Cary Grant said this was his personal favorite of all the films he made. This, from a man who made Charade, North By Northwest, Notorious, Arsenic and Old Lace, The Philadelphia Story, Gunga Din, and Bringing Up Baby, among many other classics. I guess there’s no accounting for taste. Walt Disney was said to be proudest of So Dear to My Heart, a pretty bad film. Not that this movie is bad; far from it, it’s a good little sophisticated comedy, but nothing really special. Grant and Ingrid Bergman work well together. The story, of a man who claims to be married before he starts an affair, even though he actually isn’t, is strong enough to carry me through. Maybe Cary just had a good time making it. I figure I would have, too, getting to kiss Ingrid and all.
