One of Hope's best - everyone was superbly cast!
20 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this motion picture in 1961, and it stuck with me for a few reasons. I was raised in a tract neighborhood nearly identical to 'Paradise Village', so it's like 'going home'. Hope was never funnier along with Lana Turner, but Janis Paige was superb in her role as a 'seductress'. I'm told that Miss Turner had never been in a supermarket prior to the scenes of this picture...but she had so much fun after that, her daughter took her almost weekly to one. The music is spectacular, especially the Henry Mancini-penned theme at the beginning and end - it's the first piece of 'sophisticated scandalous' music I can remember hearing. Many shots of some great now-classic autos, as well(Dodge, Chrysler 300, etc.). Al in all, it's a 'dated' motion picture, but still funny and enjoyable to watch.
