The Lady Has Plans


Sidney Lanfield

Spy shenanigans in neutral Lisbon involving stolen torpedo plans drawn on a lady's back and mistaken identity which leads to every male in the vicinity wanting to take a look at Paulette Goddard's bare back (as if an excuse were needed).

Amusing comedy of misunderstandings, a remake of 1934's Stamboul Quest.

Another 1940s Paramount never released on DVD, thus available prints are not very good.
