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 light comedy that improves with repeat viewing.
This piece of light comedy is very under-rated by many of those that I have spoken to about it, and invariably improves upon second viewing.
The timing of Mr.Boyer's deliveries are impeccable. Those who are familiar with Telly Savalas in his tough-guy roles will be astonished at his performance here. Hope Lange gives one of her warmest performances in this movie; although playing a spoiled rich girl, she never loses our affection and sympathy.
The supporting cast members play their parts wonderfully, each one adding just the right flavouring to the mix.
Ricardo Montalban does so well (Maybe just a little too simple for a European noble fallen on hard times - but I think that is acceptable in this part, where they want humour, someone believably attractive without being a challenge to Ford), that we never for a moment want him to win the female lead, yet we are pleased that he does find a good match. His closing scenes restore our respect for him.
Glenn Ford is charming in a low-key fashion. Charming yet rugged, with principles. A good, strong partner for Miss Lange's character.
The closing scene between Lange & Ford never fails to leave me smiling.
