Directed by George Fitzmaurice • 1936 • United States
Starring Jean Harlow, Franchot Tone, Cary Grant
Dorothy Parker coscripted this winning blend of romantic comedy and World War I espionage thriller, which marked Jean Harlow’s only film with fellow screen legend Cary Grant. She stars as Suzy Trent, an American chorus girl in London, who flees when her factory foreman husband (Franchot Tone) is shot by German spies and she’s framed for his murder. In France, she meets and falls in love with playboy pilot Andre Charville (Grant)—but things become complicated when she discovers that her husband is still alive and that his “murderer” is using another name.
