Description
When a European diplomat is named ambassador to the United States, he relocates to Washington, D.C., with his niece, Princess Maria, where he hopes she'll meet an eligible American bachelor. On a side trip by plane to San Francisco, Maria takes a tranquilizer to settle her nerves, passes out in mid-flight, and is out for hours. The pilot, Eddie O'Rourke, volunteers to put her up at his place for the night, and when Maria awakens, she is taken with Eddie's decency and charm, and it is love at first sight. However, Maria's uncle was hoping for her to meet someone higher up the social ladder than a pilot, and the couple has an uphill battle getting him to consent to their wedding. Starring, Academy Award-winner Olivia De Havilland as the princess, Emmy Award-winner Robert Cummings as the pilot, and Academy Award-winner Charles Coburn as the uncle. An Academy Award winner for Best Original Screenplay.

    Comments about this product:

    Olivia DeHaviland comedy with Robert Cummings. Movie copyrighted in 1943.

    Olivia is on a night flight whereby the plane provides beds and curtains to shield prying eyes from undress. A sleeping pill was consider as harmless as a vitamin. She takes way too many pills!! The flight is cancelled after they are in air and all passengers are bedded down for the night.

    Nobody can get the Princess awake for more than a few minutes. Pilot, Robert Cummings, takes responsibility to get the woman home. Now, she talking French once he can arose her. The cafe owner, decides she needs two more sleeping pills in her coffee. Zounck!

    Olivia wakes up in a strange man's apartment undressed. What happened? She finds clothes and dozens of notes of how to find things. She goes back to her uncle (Charles Colburn) unsure of her virginity.

    They meet again, after a short conversion should reveal some secrets that a man took advantage of the situation. Robert has her meet his best friends, Jane Wyman (who undressed her) and her husband and copilot, Jack Carlson. She is reassured that nothing happened.

    She agrees to go several dates without her uncle's permission. Then, he proposes marriage. Now she has to reveal her identity. She is a princess of some foreign country.

    Now, he is investigated. He comes from a family that has nine boys times nine boys for two generations. He is a acceptable American.

    He tells his fiends to find a suitable apartment for a married couple. However, they are having having trouble finding a refrigerator.

    Then from New York they go to Washington into the White House for the marriage. He is asked to sign away his life over little details. He rebels, no marriage! If he not allowed his name and no say about his family, it is tough rumble. Correct, I agree.

    Is this romance over? Franklin D. Roosevelt's dog helps decides the the outcome. Gotta watch.

      Comments about this product:

      I saw movie many years ago. Often wondered why I never saw it on TV. All of sudden there it was. Not once, but twice. When it was offered for sale, I was happy. I always thought it was hilarious in places, just entertaining.

      UNFORTUNATELY MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT WANT TO SEE IT BECAUSE IT IS IN BLACK AND WHITE.
