Ella Peterson is a Brooklyn telephone answering service operator who tries to improve the lives of her clients by passing along bits of information she hears from other clients. She falls in love with one of her clients, the playwright Jeffrey Moss, and is determined to meet him. The trouble is, on the phone to him, she always pretends to be an old woman whom he calls "Mom." Written by
As Jeffrey Moss changes the paper as he works on the outline for "The Midas Touch," the carbon paper between the blank sheets is shiny-side up. This would give him a mirror image on the back side of the first sheet instead of an original and a copy, which as an experienced typist, he would surely know. See more »

Judy Holiday is enough to justify watching any film, and she is as splendid as ever here. Dean Martin is either wonderful or awful and manages the former quite comfortably. Sadly the plot and the score let these two stars down. The chemistry between Martin and Holiday is wonderful and gives the film a warmth and an innocence that is exceedingly appealing forty years on, the fact that this was Ms Holiday's last film adding to the pathos.
You'll enjoy watching and it will raise several smiles so it has to be a good film.....it is just sad that the plot and score stop a good film becoming the classic which its cast deserved.
