The worst thing about this charming, well acted comedy is its generic title. Hold what kiss?
The leads are at their romantic best. The supporting players are delightful.
I personally would have preferred it sans the Mickey Rooney character but he doubtless helped its box office (if it had any.)
A few stereotypes are engaged in, too; but otherwise, it is a charming concoction. It's funny: O'Sullivan's boss Monsieur Maurice is written very broadly but the penultimate scene in which a tricked O'Keefe tricks her by making her pose in one gown after another after another -- they now know each other to be in retail and not in society -- is very funny.
