I Was a Male War Bride

That I Was a Male War Bride never rises to the propulsive, feverish comedic heights of films like Bringing Up Baby or Gentlemen Prefer Blondes can be easily forgiven, since it is Howard Hawks behind the lenses. You can’t hit a homerun every time at bat, but that it takes so long to get going is something of a problem. And Ann Sheridan seems out-gunned when next to Cary Grant, distinctly lacking ... read more

Captain Henri Rochard is a French officer assigned to work with Lieut. Catherine Gates. Through a wacky series of misadventures, they fall in love and marry. When the war ends, Capt. Rochard tries to return to America with the other female war brides. Zany gender-confusing antics follow.

" Cary Grant and Ann Sheridan play feuding military officials who tentatively fall in love with each other in this silly Howard Hawks screwball comedy. I actually only even watched this movie because it was on TCM and I found the title amusing. The plot of the film is pretty schizophrenic. First it's about the peevish pair making a motorcycle trip across Germany to find some guy called Schindler, and the next thing you know they're all lovey dovey and getting married. Then lastly, poor Cary "

You can’t hit a homerun every time at bat, but that it takes so long to get going is something of a problem. And Ann Sheridan seems out-gunned when next to Cary Grant, distinctly lacking the sardonic timing of Rosalind Russell or verbal-and-athletic sparing of Katharine Hepburn. Having said all of that, I Was a Male War Bride is still an enjoyable romp.
