Goofs

When Millie and Davis first go to the lookout where winning drivers are commemorated, Mille reads out some of the drivers' names. One of these is 'Brabham", but she mispronounces the name with a long 'a' as 'Braybham' rather than with a short 'a' as in 'cat'. See more »

A delightful comedy with many great actors doing fun things
1 May 2001 | by (Stuart, Florida, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I have remembered this movie for many years, and would like to own a copy of it in any media. I wonder why I can never find a VHS tape of it? I enjoyed it immensely because of all the great stars in it. It was a fun movie, set in a beautiful place, with many comical situations. Telly Savalas was quite a surprise and Ricardo Montalban was also excellent in this comedy. Charles Boyer was the master, of course. I wish I could see it again, if only for all the wonderful actors, to be enjoyed having fun. I had fun with them, laughing and loving what they had done.
