Quick Overview

Starring Ray Milland, Paulette Goddard, Roland Young, Albert Dekker, Margaret Hayes, Cecil

Kellaway

Directed by Sidney Lanfield



Print: black/white

Runtime: 77 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Long underappreciated by film buffs, The Lady Has Plans is a screwball comedy disguised

as an espionage melodrama. The title character is not star Paulette Goddard, as one might

assume, but Nazi agent Rita Lenox (Margaret Hayes), who sneaks into Lisbon with a secret

message written on her bare back in invisible ink. Through a case of mistaken identity,

perky Sidney Royce (Paulette Goddard), the assistant to globetrotting radio correspondent

Kenneth Harper (Ray Milland) is presumed to be Rita Lenox. At the behest of British

Intelligence chieftan Ronald Dean (Roland Young), who hopes to extract the vital information

supposedly scribbled on Sidney's back, our nonplussed heroine is treated like royalty in a

posh Lisbon hotel. Meanwhile, Rita, having summed up the situation, simultaneously poses

as Sidney. Once he's figured out what's what, Harper manages to waylay Rita and intercept

the message, but neither he nor Sidney are out of the woods yet-not if German spy chief

Baron Von Kemp (Albert Dekker) has anything to say about it.
