Cary Grant plays a scruffy whisky-swilling beachcomber sailor in this movie. He is considered to be 'cast against type' for this role, quite antithetical to his suave sophisticated debonair on-screen persona. See more »
When Catherine is getting drunk after being "snakebit," she says to Walter "I bet you think I'm an iceberg." Leslie Caron, however, is clearly saying "I bet you think I'm frigid." See more »
I wouldn't dare say this was an extremely great movie, but it was pretty good, I enjoyed it. I think this is the first Cary Grant movie I've ever seen and I thought he did a fine job with his role. Some of his reactions are just hilarious!
There are quite a few times though where you really feel for Cary Grant's character, because he gets completely over-run by the women that he is forced to provide for. In the end though, everyone seems to get along.
All I can really say about the film is that it's a pretty interesting story with some interesting turn of events and some good comedy. I wouldn't recommend the film to everyone, but if you're interested, go ahead and take a peak. I hope you enjoy the film.
