Wonderful film from the autobiographical novel by Cornelia Otis Skinner, and all the more hilarious because those crazy things happened to the real Cornelia. Gail Russell and Diana Lynn are perfect as the real-life friends Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough. A habit-forming film about a sweeter, more innocent age when two young girls were allowed to spend a summer in Europe, more or less unchaperoned.
