Quotes

Jane Dubois: Little else remains to be told. While other little girls were rolling hoops or playing games with little boys, I was at home, contentedly finding the hypotenuse of this or that, letting x equal all sort of things. Before you could find the cube root of 9, I was a well-known genius.

A forgotten pleasure
4 April 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful comedy and, what is more, it is neither devoid of depth nor lacking in intelligence. The idea is simple. Fans make a film star weary. He is so fed up with life than he accepts becoming the prize of a love lottery. He finds love on the way, but can't get married since he is engaged to the future winner. The winner -another girl- realizes after a day with him that her first love is more her type. The End. Admittedly, it's a slim story line, but David Niven makes it great fun, and Charles Crichton adds some delightfully ironical moments (he did make "A fish called Wanda" later). All in all a much under-rated comedy, worth many better-known ones. Definitely worth seeing.
