Toto's first film of many was pleasantly engaging - reminiscent of Chaplin and replete with physical humor and repartee. Solomon wrote "There is nothing new under the sun" and that paired with Goethe's maxim of "Everything's been thought of before;the trouble is to think of it again," makes me wonder if Jamie Farr saw the cross-dressing sequence at some time or if Steve Martin saw any Toto films while he was growing up.
I've only seen a handful of other Toto films - I've liked most of them better than this, but that's just my taste - why not start off with an actor's first film and go from there?
