FINALLY scored a copy of this! What can I say, I adore Paul Douglas - and he delivers everything here. Love the farce, love the slapstick, love all the humor. And then, almost like another movie (think "Body Heat" spliced into "Mixed Nuts")we have Darnell and Douglas. These two have the most amazing heat, I wish they had done more than their three films together. Although I am eternally grateful for their time on screen (YOWZA!!!)it makes poor Celeste Holm even more insipid than she is written to be. No matter, the movie is great great fun. I even liked John Hoyt, an actor that normally annoys me. The much loved FOX rep company is well represented. Now the search is on for "THE GUY WHO CAME BACK"!!!
