Upon arrival to America, as Tarji exits the plane, we see "Star of Bukistan": written across the aircraft in English and Arabic. In the next shot, as she is descending the aircraft's stairs, it changes to "Trans World Airlines" See more »
[recites love poem to Clem]
The night is filled with muted sounds / The air is still, but in the hush / The whispers of a thousand lovers. // You and I together here, to dream a thousand wonders / The night is still, we kiss, / And in my heart a thousand thunders.

I really love Cary Grant but this movie must have been one of those scripts that crossed his desk and was marked with a $$$ sign on it.
There's no excuse for such schlock. There was no chemistry with his fiancée 'Effie' and there was none with his 'to be bride' Tarji'. The whole damn movie was a mess. There's probably some goofs that's going to complain about racism or sexism in the whole mess, I was just wondering if there was another movie that the very cute actress Betta St. John is in. She's a looker but even she's no reason to bother with this flop of a 'movie'. I wonder what were they thinking???? I honestly can't give this more than a couple of stars in good faith.
