The Cary Grant Affair 55 / 73
Cary plays Ricky to Ann Sheridan’s Lucy
Captain Henri Rochard (Cary Grant) is a Frenchman assigned to work with American Lt. Catherine Gates (Ann Sheridan) in post-war Germany. This will be his last mission before he retires from the military, so he wants this to go smoothly and is disappointed when he is assigned to work with Lt. Gates again. They have a history of misadventures when they work together.
In fact, it’s kind of like an episode of I Love Lucy, with a playboy Frenchman instead of a Cuban.
Anyway, there are some mildly amusing antics as they complete their mission, fall in love, and get married. Then some more mildly amusing antics as they go through the complex procedures involved in getting Henri into the US as Catharine’s legal spouse.
This is a fairly pleasant film, nothing is particularly bad, but then again nothing is particularly good.
