Made in the months before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Confirm Or Deny is a pleasant comedy-drama set during the London blitz, featuring engaging performances by its lead players, Don Ameche and Joan Bennett. The production values are excellent, and for a modest movie it is visually quite striking, managing at times to evoke the mood of the true life photographs and newsreels of London on a Hollywood backlot. Director Archie Mayo was in decline when he made this film, but rallied for the occasion, making it seem much better than its script. A period piece, for sure, but a fascinating one, and at times quite moving. Unlike most American films of the period, this one gives the true globe its due, and its occasional moments of sadness and even tragedy are touching, and still resonate through the years.
Don Ameche is an American newspaperman waiting for the Germans to invade London in "Confirm or Deny," a 1941 movie also starring Joan Bennett, Roddy McDowall, and Eric Blore. Ameche plays the conniving, fast-talking Mitch, who meets Jennifer (Bennett) during an air raid and falls for her. When his office building is bombed, he moves the staff into the basement of a hotel and persuades someone to allow him test a teletype machine to give him a 40-minute lead on the another papers when the invasion happens. He arranges for Jennifer to be loaned out as a teletypist. Meanwhile, Mitch becomes mad that the censor (John Loder) isn't letting him report on some of the news.This is a tiny film from 20th Century Fox, but it really conveys the atmosphere, tension, and tragedy of wartime and has interesting and likable characters. Ameche does his usual terrific job, Bennett is lovely, and Roddy McDowall is adorable as a tiny volunteer watching out for homing pigeons with coded messages.Recommended.
Though it has some glaring tonal shifts this tiny charmer could be better known then it is.Don Ameche stars as a brash, to place it mildly, news reporter who bulldozes his method to whatever he wants in London during the Blitz. One night while walking during a blackout he happens to meet a lovely Joan Bennett and practically sweeps her off her feet. When the air raid sirens go off they end up spending the night in a tube station with variety of others, when he wakes up and she's gone leaving behind a cheeky note that would be the end of it for most boys but not for Ameche who doggedly finds out her identity and finagles a method for them to work together. From there it's a quick dance towards love amongst the threat of bombs and assorted crises. It's all cute breezy with great performances by the stars but being a fight film reality occasionally intrudes leading to those jarring shifts.Still certainly as nice as many another better known films from the era why this one has fallen through the cracks is a puzzler.
