Breezy Norman Krasna comedy of mistaken identity...
When it came to sex comedies involving mistaken identities, Norman Krasna was the master. This breezy comedy is based on one of his more modestly successful plays but it's been transferred to the screen with a generous glimpse of New York City backgrounds and de luxe apartment interiors, all in gorgeous Technicolor.
Furthermore, it has 22 year-old JANE FONDA in one of her early charming roles (before she took up politics), and two attractive male co-stars in CLIFF ROBERTSON (as her brother, an airline pilot) and ROD TAYLOR, as the man she happens to meet on a Fifth Avenue bus.
Jane's problem is that she lost her chance for marriage because she turned down sex beforehand and comes to New York from Albany to ask her brother for his advice on the subject. She isn't in the big city long before she meets ROD TAYLOR and that's when the plot goes into full swing. When her real boyfriend shows up unexpectedly at her apartment, she passes off Taylor as her brother. Naturally, this is Krasna's set-up for the rest of the story.
It's all completely innocuous but offers passable entertainment for a rainy day. Fonda is cheerfully ditzy most of the time and Taylor plays his role with his usual masculine charm. Robertson makes the most of his role as her playboy brother.
Enjoyable fluff, a bit dated, but fun.
