    Is it crazy to marry someone after only knowing him for a few hours? Absolutely. Would I do it? Absolutely ... but only if he were Charles Boyer and I'm Olivia de Havilland.

    Damn, I never knew an immigration drama could tug at my heart strings so strongly - only Wilder and Brackett could make this magic happen. Also, Paulette Goddard, I have a big girl crush on you.

    Ty-Ty in a crime film - yes, please! 

    Because of his gorgeous face, Tyrone Power never got over that tall, dark, and handsome leading man that he always played - and he still did in this movie -but now there’s crime. I’m glad to see him in a semi-dark role. Years later he would go in deeper into the darker aspects of crime and morality in the film noir, Nightmare Alley (1947), which was his crowning glory .

    I forgive the flaws of this overly long epic because I got to see Ty Power dance with Jean Peters in a steamy Spanish dance.
