If you don't want to know the ending, read no further.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, at least the first hour and fifty-seven minutes of it. The last minute was the most tragic thing I've seen since A Tale of Two Cities. Why, why, why did Nora go off with a loser like Dilg? Obviously, he was not a man to settle down and behave himself. He didn't even have a vision or dream that made his strangeness admirable. I thought he looked very dark and sinister most of the time and there was absolutely nothing about him that made me want her to end up with him.
Ronald, on the other hand, was everything she needed, and if she was smart, she would have snapped him up. I certainly would have. He was intelligent, stable, and madly in love with her.
Anyway, you get the idea of my feelings about the two main fellers - Nora Shelley was cute, if a little silly at times (and very idiotic in the last couple minutes of the film).
As for the film itself: It was full of great moments. The egg-falling-on-the-newspaper scene was hilarious. The borscht with egg in it was also amusing. It was over all good story, filmed well, told well. I also enjoyed the part when Lightcap was trying to get information out of Miss Bush. He was so artless about it, as well he might be - he probably never went out with a woman before in his life. Which is why he was an awfully stiff dancer, too.
So anyway, I'm sure by now you've figured the little detail that cost my rating of this film one star - JEAN WENT OFF WITH THE WRONG MAN IN THE END!!
I expect this probably isn't the best review ever and that I'll receive lots of flak from Cary Grant fans, and that is O-K. I still like Ronnie better.

This movie includes three of my very favourite movie stars, Cary Grant, Jean Arthur and Ronald Colman.
The basic story is that Cary Grant is an innocent prisoner who escapes from prison. He hides out at his friends house (Jean Arthur) because he has been hurt from his escape. He then has to hide from Ronald Colman who is renting the house for the summer. Colman is a Supreme Court candidate. Cary wants to prove his innocence, but instead of hiding away from Colman forever, he pretends he is the gardener. I wont give away the rest.
It really is a fantastic movie. One of the best. The acting is brilliant and with three top stars like these, you couldnt ask for much more. But you do get more! Its directed by one of the greatest, George Stevens.
The print on this DVD is nice too and it has very clear sound throughout the film.
A perfect combination of stars here, and a really great story. Well directed, well written, and one you can watch over and over again.
Highly recommended to anybody who has any taste in movies at all. Brilliant!
PLEASE NOTE: Owner of the Region 2 DVD. However, this one appears to be no different.

I saw this movie on TCM, it was on very late and I wound up staying up really late to watch it. It is a good movie and I think Cary Grant, Ronald Colman and Jean Arthur were very good. This is definitely a classic movie I could buy for my DVD collection and I highly recommend it to any fans of these actors!

A fire destroys Holmes woolen mills. The foreman is missing, presumed dead. The owner immediately denounces one of his employees of arson: Leopold Dilg (Cary Grant), the one who always makes speeches on street corners. But Dilg escapes before a prejudiced jury can convict him to death penalty. While the manhunt starts he takes refuge with Nora Shelley (Jean Arthur), a high-school teacher on her summer vacation. He causes her quite a trouble, especially since her new tenant, professor Lightcap (Ronald Colman) arrives sooner than expected. Suddenly he appears on her doorstep, complete with his umbrella, derby and dotted scarf, superior, haughty, hard to please...The house is not yet straightened up and he is in a hurry to take possession of his bedroom and get rid of this inefficient woman without delay.
But Nora sees through his formal manners and detects a heart of gold beating in his breast. She invents a disagreement with her mother, and then and there he borrows her his pajamas. Dilg's snoring keeps him awake all night and next morning the policemen who rummage through the house keep him on the go. In Nora's eyes he is in the position to help Dilg who had no fair trial("He's the #1 legal genius in this state"). But Dilg is sceptic. He thinks that "Professor Madcap" is only remotely in touch with reality, and right he is: Lightcap declares grandiloquently that "My business is with the principles of law...I can't get mixed up with those local affairs"). While Nora works on his conscience the scent of breakfast reaches Dilg's nose. He leaves his hiding-place and enters an ideological debate with the professor.
Big news: "The president will be pleased to appoint you to the bench of the supreme court...
