Barnaby Fulton is a research chemist working on a fountain of youth pill for a chemical company. While trying a sample dose on himself, he accidentally gets a dose of a mixture added to the water cooler and believes his potion is what is working. The mixture temporarily causes him to feel and act like a teenager, including correcting his vision. When his wife gets a dose that is even larger, she regresses even further into her childhood. When an old boyfriend meets her in this state, he believes that her never wanting to see him again means a divorce and a chance for him. Written by

During the opening credits, an offscreen voice twice says, "Not yet, Cary" when Barnaby (Cary Grant) opens his front door to come outside. Each time, he closes the door again so the credits can continue. See more »
I haven't seen this film for years,its very rarely on TV these days,which is a shame,i managed to get a copy on DVD,its always been one of the comedies I've wanted to own.The scene i always remembered best,was the one in which Cary Grant is playing cowboys and Indian's with the local children,and where Hank Entwhistle gets his just deserts,for being a smug playboy still trying to get Edwina.Ginger Rogers proved she could still dance and did a great comic turn,when she turns into a child.This film goes to show,that in them days they could make classic comedy without any foul language and without crudity,they didn't find any problem doing that.Marilyn Monroe provided the sexual interest in one of her more low key performances,and the plot only mildly focus on that,which is good.If you have never seen this film,and you like films from the early fifties,this is definitely worth a look.
