Annotation:Wendy Hiller is not going to let anything stop her from using an advantageous marriage to lift her status. Until a windswept island in Scotland gets into her heart.
Annotation:Margaret Sullivan and Jimmy Stewart are looking in their mailboxes for love. Directed by Ernst Lubitsch, who was perhaps the greatest director of romantic comedies.
