Trivia

The orchestral conductor, Sir Alfred de Carter, is based loosely on the real life British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham. Beecham was the son of pharmacist Sir Joseph Beecham, the inventor of the laxative Beecham's Pills. Accordingly Harrison's character, Sir Alfred de Carter, is said to be named after Carter's Little Liver Pills, the American equivalent. See more »

overwrought and tedious
25 January 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I feel very alone with my review. I watched this famous film by an exceptionally famous writer/director and I found the film to be, at best, average. It's really a shame, as I love old comedies and I generally like Rex Harrison. Given the material, though, I think the actors try their best. The absolutely WORST moment in the film was the excruciatingly overdone segment where Rex kept breaking things--stepping through several chairs, dropping things, etc. AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. The scene was just plain excessive and seemed to last forever. It absolutely ruined the movie for me. I believe if Preston Sturgis had not been the writer, director and producer of this film, he never would have gotten away with it--someone would no doubt have questioned this repetitive and annoying scene. It reminds me a lot of the bad Jerry Lewis film CRACKING UP--a movie so bad it was never released to theaters. The two movies have the most over-long pratfall segments I have ever seen--so long and overdone that even Mack Sennet would have complained about the scenes!
