When Mary shows Jeff a picture of the three of them as kids, it's a photo of children with the three star's adult pictures obviously pasted on their bodies - Mary even has on lipstick. Though they did at least use a picture of Gable without a mustache. See more »
Granted I am a huge Clark Gable fan, I thought this movie was one of the most fun films I had seen in a long time and not just because he's pretty to look at-- the whole cast was great as was the writing. I wish it hadn't been overlooked on AFI's recent top 100 comedies. I felt it was a very humorous, screwy comedy that deserves more recognition.
