When Vincent Crane goes to Croydon Airport to hire a plane for Paris, there is a stock shot of the terminal building (still there) with a Handley Page HP 42 and one of only two Boulton Paul P71A mail-planes on the apron. See more »
Does honesty about your faults and normal human desires make you respectable or dis-respectable? Is it possible to feel attraction, but not act on it? This film has the trappings of fun frivolity: disarmingly candid and confident leading man, glamorous clothes, gorgeous leading lady, contrived situations, international travel. But its light touch gets a tad deeper than you'd expect it to. Interesting to watch understated sexiness and to see where the plot goes.
Apart from George Sanders as an apprentice cad/con artist, I'd never heard of any of the cast. All were good.
The main characters' exchange about honesty and respectability, alluded to above, is worth watching for. If you're used to Hollywood films, this English piece could be a refreshing change -- or a disappointment to you.
