While I like all of the stars, I was not particularly looking forward to this. However, I was very mistaken. I found myself increasingly intrigued with each slight twist and turn of this charming story.

Great diolouge in this film, Carey Grant and Jimmy Stewart were fantastic. But the movie is extremely dated, it's age definitely shows.
