    The greatest flaw is that the female lead (the character of Diane North) is so thoroughly despicable. Let's see, she starts by being a "runaway bride," not even telling her mother where she went, which is not a classy move even if her fiance did seem ... uh ... unmasculine. She elopes with Dr. Smith after a whirlwind romance -- actually, more of a whirlwind series of hostile interactions. She gets married under her false name, not even telling her husband her real identity. Whenever she gets upset with him, she calls him some very hurtful things -- yeah, that's a romance made in heaven. The ultimate low spot of her behavior is when she learns it's his life dream to do research with a fellow scientist in China, she uses her family's power to issue a false newscast that says that the scientist in China has finished his research and is returning to the US. Yep, that's some gal.And then there are the plotholes. If he is in a rush to go from Boston to San Francisco to catch a particular ship, why would he drive, for heaven's sakes? This is 1940; wouldn't a train be faster? How about air travel? And am I the only one who noticed that his itinerary took him from Boston to Ohio to Pennsylvania, in his hurried cross-country drive?
