On-the-run Richard Todd hops in to aspiring actress Jane Wyman’s car, with Wyman then going undercover as a frumpish lady’s maid to Marlene Dietrich. British character actor overload (Alastair Sim, Sybil Thorndike, Joyce Grenfell, et al.), with Michael Wilding as the charming inspector, and with a controversial fake flashback. Screenplay co-written by Alma Reville.
