In the opening sequence, from shot to shot, there is complete lack of consistency as to which leg Cary Grant has crossed over the other. See more »

What can you expect from a woman? You're weak, helpless, and nothing but trouble. And that goes for all of you. Harriet Beecher Stowe. She wrote about slaves, didn't she? Well, it sure takes one to know one.
She great woman. She write Uncle Tom's Cabin.

I really love Cary Grant but this movie must have been one of those scripts that crossed his desk and was marked with a $$$ sign on it.
There's no excuse for such schlock. There was no chemistry with his fiancée 'Effie' and there was none with his 'to be bride' Tarji'. The whole damn movie was a mess. There's probably some goofs that's going to complain about racism or sexism in the whole mess, I was just wondering if there was another movie that the very cute actress Betta St. John is in. She's a looker but even she's no reason to bother with this flop of a 'movie'. I wonder what were they thinking???? I honestly can't give this more than a couple of stars in good faith.
