They Met in Bombay is a classic 1940s romantic comedy and heist film with strong leading roles for Clark Gable and Rosalind Russell, who portray rivals in the theft of a valuable gem as the Japanese army invades China during World War II. Gerald Meldrick (Clark Gable) is a dashing international jewel thief with designs on a diamond held by the Duchess of Beltravers (Jessie Ralph). He meets his match in the form of Anya Von Duren (Rosalind Russell), a beautiful con artist. As they work against each other, Gerald acts as a Scotland Yard detective, and Anya adopts the identity of a haughty aristocrat. With an inspector and a greedy mercenary captain (Peter Lorre) in hot pursuit, the two team up to pull off a big score.
