mature whit
12 October 2001 | by (Mass, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie has a very mature whit, it is not an "adult film" but young people just won't get it. I watched it the first time in my twenties but did not appreciate it as I did when I saw it in my thirties and had been married for many years. Cary Grant's character is caught with the possibility of loosing the wife that is the center of his world. He must choose between making a fuss or letting her go quietly. He feels if he makes a fuss the choices are she will stay and they will both be unhappy or she will still go and he will have lost his stiff upper lip. The plot is added to by his wife's best friend that would be very happy to console him if his wife leaves. (hey I would be happy to console Cary Grant) The script is a hoot the dialogue lively and cunning. The only real action is a duel at thirty paces that shows who is willing to give his life for the love of his life. The set is a little constraining but the stately homes of Britain are pretty stuffy in real life. The casting of Robert Mitchum as the American millionaire is perfect, he is very American and everyone else is so very British his is really the odd man out.

I enjoy this movie every time and recommend it for a relaxing, amusing evening.
