Original screenplay was written by Betsy Drake, Cary Grant's wife. Grant originally wanted it to star her but his extra-marital affair with Sophia Loren complicated the project. Drake's script was drastically re-written by two other writers to accommodate Loren and bears little resemblance to Drake's concept. See more »
Tom's apartment is in Washington, D.C., but when he's shown driving his kids to the concert at the Watergate, he approaches the area from the Virginia side of the Memorial Bridge, the opposite direction from which he should logically have been coming. See more »
A charming family film made overwhelmingly so by the irresistible presence of Cary and Sophia.
A sitcom done right, a rarity, and there's no denying the appeal of Sophia Loren and Cary Grant, both obviously in love with each other offscreen, as well as on. Good work by all, with music by George Duning and vocals by Sophia to add to your pleasure.
