Description by OLDIES.com:
Beautiful Austrian political refugee "Johnny" Jones is about to be deported, leaving the loving arms of a married Manhattan publisher for the waiting arms of the Nazis. The solution: instant citizenship via a marriage of convenience with flat-broke writer Bill Smith, in which the only thing they'll share is the same last name. Hedy Lamarr plays Johnny and James Stewart plays Bill. Think there's any chance this marriage will remain strictly business? A chic romp stylishly directed by Clarence Brown, Come Live with Me tempers its sophistication with plenty of charm, compliments of its two iconic stars and 80-year-old Adeline de Walt Reynolds in her acting debut (her subsequent career lasted 19 years), stealing scenes as Bill's no-nonsense grandmother.
James Stewart's last Hollywood film before entering military service, COME LIVE WITH ME teams Stewart with the hauntingly beautiful Hedy Lamarr. Lamarr plays a wealthy Austrian emigree, in love with a married American publisher. The girl must quickly find an American husband or she'll be deported. Along comes Stewart, an idealistic (and starving) writer given to quoting poetry in moments of crisis. He marries her on a "strictly business" basis...but Love finds a way, especially after Stewart wins fame by writing a story about his companionate marriage. COME LIVE WITH ME served as the screen debut of 80-year-old actress Adeline de Walt Reynolds, who as Jimmy Stewart's grandmother launched a twenty year career as everyone's favorite matriarch.
