A journalist (Cary Grant) attempts to break up a Yankee-Nazi marital alliance in a screwball set amid Nazi Europe.
Like To Be or Not to Be, a screwball amid Nazi Europe, with Grant’s journalist Pat O’Toole attempting to break up a Yankee-Nazi marital alliance between social-climbing Brooklyn girl Katie (Rogers) and Baron Von Luber (Slezak), one of Hitler’s personal undercover operators. ‘A very strange and stark lark’, according to The New York Times, the film mingles farce, romance, newsreel footage and lucid propaganda, and is held together by the comic rapport of Grant and Rogers.
