This was Paul Douglas' last film. He died in 1959 of a heart attack, the same year it was made. He was born in 1907, making him 52 when he made this film. He had been offered a starring role in Billy Wilder's 1960 comedy, The Apartment, but the role was given to Fred MacMurray after Paul Douglas passed away. See more »

Mating Game is a charming, wonderful movie from an era gone by. Hollywood needs to consider a charming remake of this movie. My wife and I would go see it.
It is an excellent romantic comedy that my wife and I watched on AMC.
This movie has Tony Randall at his best. Debbie Reynolds is great, as always.
Loved it. We plan on ordering on DVD to add to our growing collection of movies.
Too bad Hollywood does not make movies like this anymore.
Hey Hollywood....time to dig some of these type of scripts out of the old safe, update them a bit (without spoiling the original movie and script as you have done with other remakes), and hold a casting call.
A remake would be a big hit on the silver screen, DVD, and on cable/SATTV.
