In fact, Michael is a Communist spy and has been a member of the Party since he was in school. When Melinda finally realizes just what and who he is, she tells him to choose between her or his beliefs. He tells her he'll leave the Party but its all a ruse.

A feeling that I'm going to drive

you home after the dance.

Why, of course.

Even I knew that.

You know.

I've never been so happy.

Just think.

If your mother hadn't written my mother.

To thank you for the Virginia

ham my mother sent ..

Then my mother would never

have written to your mother.

She bought the ham purely on impulse.

If she hadn't ..

I wouldn't be here this minute.

I wouldn't have met ..




You know, Joyce.

I think I'm almost in love with him.

Major Michael Curragh.


It's thundering.

I'm not a bit afraid of the

thunder and lightning.

Not a bit.

But do you mind if I get in your bed?

I'm not a bit afraid.

Lin, I wish you'd hurry.

Mother's sent for a taxi.

What on earth made me buy this thing.

It's too young.

Look Joyce, hasn't your mother

anything I could borrow?

I could see.

Thanks a lot, Joyce.

What sort of thing?

Oh .. something black.

Jet black, with a veil.

Oh, that's perfect.

Except for the rose.

The rose is too bright.

Well really Lin,

we're not going to a funeral.

Now if I can just snip off this rose.


I'll sew it back on.

Oh Lin, you've cut the stem.

Anyway, I don't see why you

want to look like your own mother.

I would be different if Major Curragh had

a mother complex but I don't think he has.

Or why would he like you?

If you'd read as much as I have ..

You would know that practically every

man in the world has a mother complex.


I look more interesting, don't I.

The taxi is waiting.

You look very pretty, Joyce.

You too Melinda. Your hat.

My dear, I have a hat very much

like the one you're wearing.

Only mine has a rose on it.

This isn't the real thing, you know.

Just a rehearsal ..

For the Guard of Honour we're to

put on for the Maharajah of Pindor.
