Undoubtedly one of his worst films this deservedly obscure Cary Grant film is a paper thin and borderline idiotic story about a dancing caterpillar! The lead kid could not be more noxious and Grant gives a remarkably arch performance, mugging shamelessly. He must have realized what a dog this was, forced to do it under contract and figured that over reacting and turning on the goo might save this dreck. Janet Blair is incredibly lovely but given very little to do. Two wonderful character actors, James Gleason and William Demarest are likewise wasted and stuck in this disaster. All stars have dogs in their credits list and this one is right next to The Pride and the Passion for Cary.
