Plot Summary
Lady reporter Augusta "Gusto" Nash (Claudette Colbert) poses as the wife of imprisoned American pilot Tom Martin (Ray Milland) to save him from execution by Spanish fascists. The gesture lands her a front-page story and the praise of her boss, Mr. Phillips (Walter Abel), who assigns her to cover the impending war. Martin and Nash begin a romance that may be torn apart when conflicting career obligations pull them in different directions, in the wake of Hitler's invasion of Poland.
