When Doris Day puts on her black evening gown near the beginning of the movie, she has on a black slip with straps. She adjusts the straps of the gown over the straps of the slip. Later, when she and David Niven are eating dinner in a restaurant, the strap of the dress ships off her shoulder, and there is no slip strap. See more »
"Please don't eat the daisies" is one of my favorite movies of Doris Day. In opposite of her other Screwball-Comedies she shows us in this movie her natural talent. She sings like in the most of her movies, but her song with the children is made in an excellent way. Her Leading Man David Niven is the perfect partner for the lovely Ms Day. We can also see, that she is one of the few real Hollywoods Ladies, who played with children. In ten movies she plays a mother !!! This movie kept her at the top of the Box Office after her sucess with Pillow Talk, which is the opposite to this one. Everybody will enjoy this little cut comedy, which is really more than 'just one of those films".
