The building that housed the phone answering service was a unique old building that was the only one on the block. Steven Spielberg used it 25 years later for the setting of *batteries not included (1987) which was supposedly owned by the only holdout in the middle of a construction project. See more »

I found Bells Are Ringing accidentally when I was researching another film project and it has become a favorite. While Holliday is sparkling in her role, it is Martin's low-key reactions (which are, of course, what made him such a great straight man) that send me back to watch the film again and again. It's a "don't-miss" for fans of Holliday, Martin and the musical comedy - heavy on the comedy - genre.
