George begins to tell her his idea about the operation and tells her to sit down. Several things can be seen from the side shot on the desk in front of her as she sits. First 4 piles of cards are face up with the rest of the deck face down in a single pile to the left of them. Also her purse and the ash tray are above them closer to the far edge of the desk. Then when they switch to a front shot of her things have changed. The denomination of face up cards are different and the rest of the deck face down is now in 2 piles instead of one. Also her purse and ash tray is now in line with the piles of cards not above them as before. See more »
I saw this movie for the first time over twenty years ago but could never remember the title. I saw it again on AMC and recognized it immediately, but my memories of it have strayed quite a bit from what I thought it was. In fact, this movie takes an amusing idea, a man in a woman's body, throws in some funny lines, but misses the point and goes no where. Tony Curtis plays a very funny straight man to Debbie Reynolds, and while she may have been attractive for the time, the outdated values and generation gap haven't exactly endeared this movie to a whole new generation. While still more enjoyable than it's recent re-make, "Switch" with Ellen Barkin and Jimmy Smits, the movie almost immediately drags after the opening sequences and sets up a premise that really goes nowhere. Pat Boone's role is seemingly tagged on as is Roger C. Carmel's, but Walter Matthau is nearly unrecognizable as a worldly skirt-chaser giving Reynolds something to run from. While I can't in good conscience give this a ten, the movie is worth while a look as a seven.
