Movie long out of circulation makes TCM debut Thursday night Nov 29th 8 PM est.

In stunning VistaVision.

Some background on the film.

Can't wait to hear Hepburn butcher a Russian accent.

Saw the previews on TCM & this looks really bad. I love Hepburn, but this just seems like a lousy idea from the outset.

Oh, it's terrible. I suppose if Cary Grant had been cast it might have been okay, but Bob Hope?

Miss Hepburn must have been gritting her teeth the whole time.

Here's the page from the website. Thanks for the info, OP.

I noticed it wasn't listed in my local TV Times, so perhaps it was a recent addition to the schedule.

I even noticed that in the trailer it is



Katharine HEPBURN

Very odd.

R4, the story sounds fine -- written by Ben Hecht & kind of like "Ninotchka". But I agree with you that using Bob Hope instead of a Cary Grant type ruins the whole thing.

I don't recall ever reading anything about Hepburn & Hope even knowing each other, much less being friends. I wonder what kind of relationship they did have after going through this ordeal together.

Leonard Maltin's review says that although the script isn't very good, Hepburn & Hope have a good rapport.

So I'm going to watch it since it might be worth it just for the fun of seeing the two of them together.

It's such a blatant rip-off of Ninotchka, I wonder how they got away with it.

An interesting article about the movie's history.
