The footstool's position varies between scenes. When Perry falls over the footstool the first time, he places it so that it is near the foot of April's bed. However, when April falls over it, it has moved to the middle of the floor some distance away from the beds towards the bathroom. After falling over it a second time, Perry moves it away from the beds and away from the direction of the bathroom. However, when he is carrying April out of the bathroom, the footstool is now back in the middle of the floor between the beds and the bathroom. See more »

I saw this charming comedy several times in the 1950s, when I was a little girl. I was absolutely enthralled with the suave and handsome Louis Jourdan, who is the personification of what a leading man should be. Lili Palmer, who looked exquisite, was his match. I was able to eat lobster after seeing this, but not as an adult.
This movie used to get me into trouble with my parents because I didn't have a TV in my room and would sneak out of bed at night occasionally when this movie was on, turn the sound down very low and sit on top of the screen in order to see and hear it. But I would still get caught. It wasn't the movie, it was the late hour that would get me into trouble.
I would really like to see this again to see if it still stands up. I know I have always been a Louis Jourdan fan because of it.
