A 60's bauble
19 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bright, shiny and fluffy soufflé that is almost so lightweight that it practically floats away under its own silliness. That it doesn't is a credit to the cast.

Kirk Douglas not known for his comedy chops brings his usual intensity to the part he just molds it into a softer direction. His role is written more for a Cary Grant but he does pretty well in the part.

More at home and therefore more at ease are his co-stars Mitzi Gaynor, Gig Young and Thelma Ritter. Young's part, one that he could play in his sleep, of the slick playboy is rather small but he injects a merry tone into the picture whenever he shows up.

Mitzi, and her gravity defying hair which though it never moves still looks good on her, is sly and knowing decked out in some eye popping creations. The red dress and white coat with matching red lining is a particular knockout.

Thelma Ritter, somewhat underused since she brings the film to life the minute she shows up, is her usual wry, caustic fabulous self. For once not a maid or a spinster she like Mitzi is decked out in one beautiful if at times outlandish outfit after another.

Julie Newmar and Leslie Parrish, both early in their careers, don't have much to do as the younger sisters but are stunning creatures nonetheless.

Nothing more than a fizzy comedy from the mid-60's with over bright colors to show off its Technicolor photography, cool cars, handsome men, gorgeous women in beautiful clothes and a mind to entertain. If you are looking for any kind of depth look elsewhere but to relax and see talented performers having some fun this will fill the bill.
