When little Nonnie (Baby Monroe) is found at the United Nations, UN higher-ups fear an international incident if the child is turned over to the New York police and placed in a foundling home. Instead they ask Frank Larrimore (Hope), who works on children's issues at the UN, to care for the child and make the decision about her future home.
Countries from all over the globe lobby for custody of Nonnie, while Frank rather predictably finds himself falling for the little girl. He also develops feelings for Lisette (Michele Mercier), the Belgian U.N. employee who helps him care for Nonnie when the baby gets the measles.
Two strong pluses are location filming at the United Nations and Yvonne DeCarlo. DeCarlo has a small role as a representative of Spain, but she wakes the movie up and then some with a steamy flamenco late in the film.
A GLOBAL AFFAIR was directed by Jack Arnold. It was filmed by Joseph Ruttenberg.
The Warner Archive DVD is a nice widescreen black and white. There are no extras.
