Claudette Colbert and John Wayne star in this charming romantic comedy from celebrated Director Mervyn LeRoy. Kit (Claudette Colbert) is a bestselling author travelling by train to Hollywood, where they plan to turn her latest book into a blockbuster. On the train, she meets Rusty Thomas (John Wayne), a Marine pilot who just happens to hate her book - and tells her so - not realising who she is! Kit, however, is convinced that Rusty is just the man to star in the Hollywood adaptation - and won't take no for an answer! She pursues him across the country by rail and by road, all the while keeping her identity secret. But the path to Hollywood - or true love - never runs smooth and the couple must endure seemingly endless complications as they travel together...
Some Time Ago
- Without Reservations review by Cato
Wayne well into his career, 39 years old, and Colbert, 43, gave us a film which would have seemed pretty funny in its time, but unfortunately it now seems so ancient that it's only for the true historians of cinema to find it amusing.
