The Wife Takes a Flyer

Directed by Richard Wallace
1942    86m    Not Rated
6.2
Christopher Reynolds, an American flying with the R.A.F, is shot down over German-occupied Holland and is given shelter by a Dutch family. Posing as the insane husband of the daughter of the house, Anita Wolverman, Reynolds convinces the German officer quartered there, Major Zellfritz, with the necessity for her divorce decree to be granted. After the court hearing, Anita, goes to manage a home for retired ladies and, persuaded by Reynolds, tries to gain military information from the German officer. After her former husband escapes from the mental asylum, his exploits are blamed on Reynolds. With the help of the old ladies and Anita, who "remarries" him, Reynolds escapes to England in a stolen German airplane.
