Review by Connie Vanderbeek (posted on 12-Nov-2007)

I love this movie. I saw this movie on television many years ago and fell in love with it. Cary Grant was wonderful and his acting between being a tough guy and tender when the letter was read to him showed what a great actor he was. Laraine Day was beautiful and when she cried, I cried to. I thought it was a beautiful love story of two opposites. I just recorded it again a few months ago when it was on AMC. I would love to have a permanent recording of it, but I understand it is not available to buy. I was very sad today to hear that she had passed away. They were both two of the greatest movie stars.
