365 Movies: Arise, My Love Review

Arise, My Love stars Claudette Colbert, Ray Milland, and Dennis O' Keefe in this 1940, Mitchell Leisen film. Augusta Nash(Colbert) rescues Tom Martin(Milland) after he is held in a Spanish prison. Explaining to the people holding Tom captive, that she is his wife, they let him go, only to realize after that she isn't. The two narrowly escape and they fly off to Paris, where Augusta is expected to deliver her story. Augusta, is very career oriented and when she rescues Tom, she has no idea, that Tom fell instantly for her. I feel that the first half of this movie, was really quite funny and good, but then towards the end, it really began to drag. The storyline kind of went all over the place, at that point, and that's where I lost interest. I thought, Claudette and Ray were perfectly charming and sweet together, but I just wish that the ending turned out differently.
