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 »

Just thought you might like to know that HOUSEBOAT was partially shot at Fort Washington, Maryland.... right on the Potomac, south of Washington, DC. To my knowledge, this is the only Hollywood movie ever shot at the Fort. Since the movie was made there is now a COMMUNITY built up around the fort ALSO called "Fort Washington".... zip code 20744. In 1958 Fort Washington, Maryland was part of Oxon Hill, MD.
