Format: DVD
Ray Milland (Tom) is awaiting execution in Franco's Spain when he gets a last minute reprieve courtesy of his wife's intervention. Only his wife, Claudette Colbert (Augusta) isn't really his wife. She's a reporter looking for a story. They make a run for it when their deception is discovered and then the film plays out as a romance set against the beginning of World War 2.

Basically, nothing happens in this film. It's very talky. The actors are just given too many words to rattle off to each other without the film ever going anywhere. After about an hour, when nothing had happened, I paused the film and went to have a poo. This gave me the very welcomed experience of actually being entertained as I got to read another chapter of my book - "And I Don't Want To Live This Life" by Deborah Spungen, mother of Nancy Spungen (as of Sid and Nancy fame/legend). When I resumed the film, it just continued in a very boring manner with not a lot happening and lots of words.

Question - where are the Hebrides? The answer according to this film is off the coast of Ireland. Yeah, just like Spain is off the coast of Norway. At the beginning of the film, the best part, the soldier being executed marches in time with his executors to his fate. No way. Why is he marching in time to the tune of his enemy killers? While the 2 leads, Colbert and Milland, do work well together and are very likable stars, they unfortunately just get bogged down with sappy shenanigans. The story is just unbelievable tosh. I can't recommend it because the film is boring.

Arise, My Love inadequate 14 April 2013
By lujean howard - Published on
Verified Purchase
I love this movie but the copy I received is very poor quality. It was obviously something someone copied from a local television broadcast. There were interruptions in the flow of the movie... I assume for commercials during the broadcast. At one point the sound completely disappeared for a a whole scene. I was very disappointed in the copy I received. I would still love to see a copy of the movie that is professionally done.

Arise My Love - DVD 1 Sep 2012
By Michael Stockford - Published on
The DVD didn't come in a case but just a cover, that was my first clue that I was gett5ing a copy of a copy. The DVD is scratchy. It is one of my favorite films so I am disappointed.

The DVD is just a copy taken off of television ... 9 July 2014

The DVD is just a copy taken off of television. About 2/3 through the movie there is about 90 seconds of silence. Aggravating.
