Dictating his memoirs near the end of his life, 'Rex Harrison' barely mentioned "Midnight Lace" except to say that he wasn't fond of the script. He also (falsely) reported that 'Doris Day' was under so much pressure to make the picture work that she collapsed. Day was indeed under strain, though it was due to her personal form of method-acting that caused her breakdown, not from the script or the production. See more »
At the end of the movie, Kit is scared by the fireplace coals moving (making a sound). There is a decent size fire going. In just a matter of minutes, when her husband comes home and they turn off all lights, no fire or light from the fireplace is visible. See more »

This movie is reminiscent of an Alfred Hitchcock with its plots within plots. Doris Day's performance was so convincing that you really have to question her character's sanity. This movie's great cast also helps to make this a good movie. Overall, watching this movie makes for a great evening at home.
