I Was a Male War Bride 1949 Cary Grant War Comedy Romance
Stars: Cary Grant, Ann Sheridan, Marion Marshall
Tagline: …and this is how SHERIDAN TOOK GRANT!
In I Was a Male War Bride, Henri Rochard is a French captain assigned to work with Lt. Catherine Gates. Through a wacky series of misadventures, they fall in love and marry. When the war ends, Rochard tries to return to America with the other female war brides. Zany gender-confusing antics follow.
Grant’s perfect comic timing and adorable mien makes the blatantly “please laugh now” moments genuinely funny. The look of resignation, anger, or suppressed annoyance on his face as he repeatedly asserts that he is “an alien spouse” under the Congressional War Brides Act must be seen to be believed. And I dare anyone not to laugh when Grant cross-dresses!
Howard Hawks proves once again why he is considered to be the director’s director. The story is fairly simplistic, but with the help of brilliant actors and ingenious dialogue he turned it into a masterpiece and a classic. And it’s a darn funny movie, too.
