I really enjoyed this film a lot. The other reviewers don't seem to do this movie justice or give it its due. The only name I recognized was that of Warren Hull so it wasn't famous stars that drew me to it. The premise was silly enough to make it part screw-ball comedy and part romantic comedy. There was an agreeable combination of both. I thought the cast was equally good and there were plenty of hardy belly laughs whenever a character said a witty line; many of them a spoken staccato-style which I think is pretty characteristic of movies of that era. If you're looking for easy viewing for an evening's light entertainment, this is an excellent choice.
