Overview

Better known as Reunion in France, this women's-magazine-style romantic melodrama was the first major production for director Jules Dassin -- who was promptly demoted back to the MGM "B" department when the picture tanked at the box office. Joan Crawford stars as Frenchwoman Michele de la Becque, who comes to believe that her fiancé, wealthy munitions manufacturer Robert Cortot Philip Dorn is a Nazi collaborator. When her suspicions are apparently corroborated, Michelle falls in love with Pat Talbot John Wayne, a downed American aviator stranded in occupied Paris. Only then does Michelle discover that she's been all wrong about Cortot -- but what to do about Talbot, who has been marked for death by the Gestapo? Ava Gardner has a tiny role as a Parisian shopgirl.

    Twists and turns, dramatic but slow plot, with a different side of John Wayne than the norm(very cute).
