A Charming Romp of a Film
7 June 2006 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

It is a long time since I have sat alone and laughed out loud at a film, but this one made me chuckle, chortle and hoot enough times to make it an immediate success in my mind. Most of my laughter was because of Shirley MacLaine, who gives a wonderful performance -not as quirky as she is in many of her other films of this period, but full of fabulous subtleties in facial expression, tone of voice, body language and screen expression. Being a big fan of David Niven too, I was delighted to see how good the chemistry between him and MacLaine was -he often plays a little bewildered to her forthrightness, and is a perfect match to her good-meaning clumsiness ..always the gentlemen! The other actors give great performances ..especially Gig Young, and the film is superbly cast right down to the smallest one-liner part: they all have their little moments and are allowed to shine, which adds to the enjoyment of the film. The story swings along nicely and is thoroughly enjoyable, even though you know where its going ..but that may be part of its charm.
