Arise, My Love (1940)

11/08/1940 (US) ComedyDramaRomance 1h 50m

Here's the gay, glorious story of a war correspondent and a war ace...a romance that could happen only in 1940!


In 1939, American Tom Martin, who fought in the Spanish Civil War, awaits execution at the hands of the Fascist victors when reporter Augusta 'Gusto' Nash, for a scoop, aids him in an audacious escape. Of course, Tom tries to romance Gusto; but though she likes him, her career comes first, and Tom himself prefers freedom-fighting to settling down. Comedy becomes drama as their mixed feelings lead them on a circuitous path through the deepening chaos and catastrophe of the early days of World War II.
