Lady Elisabeth Randall is an English Air Force corporal during World War II. She is on her way to marry her fiancé when she finds herself being romanced by two different men. The first man is Colbert, a Frenchman residing in England. The second man is Joe Mulvaney, an American lieutenant. Difficulties ensue as Lady Elisabeth finds that due to these romances both her military career and her impending marriage are in danger.


Critical reception

TV Guide wrote that "The direction never convinces the viewer that this story was meant to be told anywhere but on the stage";[5] and in his book Anthony Asquith, Tom Ryall noted that the film "reflected the tone though not the success of its stage predecessor."[6]

Box Office

As of 1 April 1950 the film earned distributor's gross receipts of £98,984 in the UK of which £62,807 went to the producer.[1]
