When Larry Larkin's comic strip needs some freshening up, he calls in ghost-writer Francis X. Dignan to help him with the strip. Things get complicated when Francis rekindles his love for his ex-wife, who happens to be Larkin's secretary and soon-to-be wife. Written by
This well-acted mid-nineteen fifties comedy with its star-studded cast
is engaging and full of funny lines and situations. In the case of
Pearl Bailey, still looking young, slim and attractive in her late
thirties, it is also well sung. Her humorous asides to Eva Marie
Saint's character ("Are you all right, Honey?") as she serenades Dignan
(Bob Hope) and Dunreith after dinner, in the role of their maid,
Gussie, are very amusing. The song she sings is "Zing! went the strings
of my heart." A very young Jerry Mathers will tug at your heartstrings
as a little boy being adopted by a famous cartoonist. George Sanders
acted the part of the self-deceiving and self-promoting cartoonist
Larry Larkin to the limit and beyond, but it all comes together in this
light-hearted and entertaining movie. One memorable scene has Bob Hope,
with a ukulele and straw hat, sitting in a canoe on a very long sofa,
preparing to sing the title tune. If you missed the film when it came
out, it's well worth a look, fifty years later.
