Goofs

When Rocky is lying down on Barbie's bed after she has left to sit at the kitchen table, only the second and third buttons on Rocky's shirt are done up, his shirt not tucked into his pants. In the next shot when he is about to get up, the second, third and fourth buttons on the shirt are done up, the shirt still not tucked into his pants. In the next shot as Rocky is now off the bed, all but the top button on his shirt are done up, the front of his shirt now tucked into his pants. See more »

Charming comedy-drama with disturbing touches.
13 July 2000 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

Though the film is often very funny, this comedy-drama had some very strong scenes for 1963, especially in the scenes relating to an abortion. It certainly has one of the best performances of Natalie Wood's career, and a funny performance by Steve McQueen; there are also good performances by Edie Adams, Herschel Bernardi, Harvey Lembeck, and Tom Bosley (in his screen debut). It was an attempt to update the screwball romances of the 1930s, but with very "contemporary" (for the time) touches, such as premarital sex and abortion.
