I admit to being a fan of romantic comedies. This is one of the very best. Stewart and Rogers are fantastic and surrounded by a great cast - most particularly Beulah Bondi and Grady Sutton.
The best part for 21st century viewers of the "ancient" classic is the amount of sexual tension the director (and Stewart and Rogers) put in the film. The scenes with the murphy bed in Roger's apartment are among the funniest and sexiest every filmed. I'm surprised this got by the censors back then! The pace of the film is excellent, the characters are charming, the romance is engaging, the acting is superb, and the writing is even more so.
Why this is not available on DVD is beyond me. If you get the chance, watch this film.
