Crazy Credits

The foreword after the opening credits reads: Dear Richest Men in the World: We made up this character in the story, out of our own heads. It's nobody, really. The whole thing is make-believe. We'd feel awful if anyone was offended. Thank you, The Author, Director and Producer. P.S. Nobody sue. P.P.S. Please. See more »

terrific!!!
11 May 2003 | by (sioux city, iowa) – See all my reviews

All aspiring and established actresses who aspire to light comedy and romantic comedy, should pay to see Jean Arthur. Simply the greatest.. She set a standard that may not be attained. She was that good. I never saw her give anything but an excellent performance And I think i have seen just about everything she did
