  • Critical reception

    The New York Times wrote, "a foreword to the film states that its production was interrupted five times when Nazi bombs exploded on the studio, but all their destructive fury has left no visible mark on the quiet humor and the atmosphere of hearthside warmth that permeate this wisp of a tale about a young couple on the eve of their marriage...Anthony Asquith has directed with tender appreciation of his material this completely unpretentious and charming film, the component parts of which are as delicately balanced as the mechanism of a watch."
