A gambler has plans to swindle money from a charity program, but starts to have second thoughts when he falls for a rich society girl.
Enjoyable movie pitched somewhere between a romantic comedy, a caper movie and a patriotic drama. Grant plays a conman and gambler working under an assumed name to avoid being drafted and to rip off a wartime charity run by Laraine Day.
It's a bogart style role, the cynical guy being won around by the goodhearted woman and the worlds bigger picture and Grant plays it well without losing his normal style.
It's a little heavy handed at times with regard to the wartime elements of it but Grant is charming and handles the moments of comedy and romance very well and does convince as a crook even if his arc is pretty much obvious from the start. Day works nicely…
An uneven screwball grifter melodrama featuring Cary Grant as Cary Grant. The heavy-handed drama interrupts the basic joy of watching Cary Grant be the smartest guy in the room. The movie in which Cary Grant learns to knit.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
