Storyline

Anna Kalman is a London based actress. She has been unable to find love in her life. The reason why she came home early from a vacation to Majorca fits into that theme, as the man she met there and was initially attracted to ended up not being who she thought he was as a man. Upon her arrival home, she meets the suave Philip Adams, a financier who is a work acquaintance of her brother-in-law, diplomat Alfred Munson. Philip initially states that there is no Mrs. Adams in his life. But when Anna later asks him out, he clarifies that statement in that there is no Mrs. Adams in London, as she is at home in San Francisco. Regardless, Anna decides still to ask him on the date she had intended to the ballet. He accepts, letting her know that whatever happens between the two of them that he will never be able to leave his wife. As time goes on, the two fall in love, their happiness which can only be sustained as long as Philip has his Paris-based contract with NATO. So when Philip announces ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

It was a number of firsts for Ingrid Bergman: the first time in an out-and-out comedy, the first time that she played a woman of fashion, wearing the last of the personal creations by the late Christian Dior and the Rolls Royce that was supposed to be hers was the first 1958 Silver Wraith to be seen on the streets of London. It was also the first time that The Garrick Club was used as a location. See more »

Goofs

When Anna and Philip arrive back at Anna's apartment after their first date, Anna lights a fire in the fireplace. First the flames are abundant and high, yet moments later as they talk and walk around the living room, the flames are barely noticeable. However, as the camera pulls out showing Anna alone in her living room after Philip has left, the high flames have returned, and the fire is roaring once again. See more »

Quotes

Philip Adams: Oh, I tell you. Women are not the sensitive sex. That's one of the grand delusions of literature. Men are the true romanticists.

Cary!Bergman!
4 November 2001 | by kenandrafSee all my reviews

Average romance/comedy made above average by the mere presence of two legendary movie stars.The story moves along quite slow but romance comedy fans will be rewarded during the second part of the movie as the complications stir up the energy a bit.The script and screenplay could have been much better but the cinematography,despite limited settings,was good enough to capture the charm of the two lead superstars.Only for fans of the lead stars and big fans of romance/comedy movies.......
