When the Nazis invade Poland, the husband-and-wife founders of a Warsaw theatrical troupe (Jack Benny and Caroler Lombard) find themselves cast in a plot to prevent a list of resistance leaders from falling into enemy hands. Released one month after Lombard’s tragic death, this satirical farce caused quite a stir upon release, but is now considered one of the greatest comedies of all time.
