I Know Where I'm Going!
Headstrong Woman Plans to Marry for Money in Picturesque Romance

In 1945, the writer-director-producer team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, known collectively as "The Archers," had just released their film Black Narcissus when they released the romantic drama I Know Where I'm Going! Convinced that money is the source of all happiness, Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller) is the determined young woman who is planning to sail to an island off the coast of Scotland to marry the wealthy, aging industrialist to whom she is engaged. The sailing is rough, however, delaying her in Scotland. "People are very poor around here," comments the heroine to Catriona, a local woman who is a close friend of the man she plans to marry. "Not poor, they just haven't got any money, " "Same thing." "No, it isn't." The appeal of the Scots and the attentions of a naval officer (Roger Livesey) who is home on leave begin to convince Miss Webster to follow her heart rather than her head.
