Did You Know?

Charley's quote from John Webster is from 'Westward Hoe' Act II Scene 2. It is also quite similar to one of the Apothegms of Francis Bacon (1561-1626) - "Alonso of Aragon was wont to say in commendation of age, that age appears to be best in four things, - old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read".See more »
Jim Scott:Oh, now you're arguing just like a woman.
Connie Scott:I never claimed to be anything else.

Contrived and boring, 27 May 2001
Author: rollo_tomaso ( from New York, NY

This is one of those forced early-'50's sex comedies without the sex. Lundigan is contrived and insipid, and Marilyn Monroe is totally miscast as his old Army buddy, Bobby Stephens. Henry Kulky provides the movie's only truly interesting character. When he is on-screen, he is making a different-and-better movie than the rest of the players.
