funny, clever movie
9 January 2008 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

A pity this very funny film has slipped into some sort of limbo lately, though it was common TV fare not too many years ago. It shows just how imaginative a director Jack Webb really was: the picture is full of delightful little directorial touches (most of them quite amusing). The casting of many familiar TV faces was a smart move for it gave nice roles to such stalwarts as Don Knotts, Louis Nye and Joe Flynn, to name a few.

Very highly recommended as a most pleasant comedy.

It is also a pity that some writers, like the previous reviewer, have to slander Webb's reputation by accusing him of homosexuality. It's a common libel applied to people who are conveniently dead and cannot defend themselves. I wont, of course, even dignify the writer's accusation by answering it, but will only say that Mr Webb's life and life's work speaks for itself.
