From its opening credits with the film's two male costars, Andy Williams and Robert Goulet, whose fans of their vocal abilities keep them busy to this day, crooning "I'd Rather Be Rich" to pert and pretty Sandra Dee, looking ultra-glamorous in one of the Jean Louis creations leaving no doubt that her character was a young lady of wealthy privilege, this Ross Hunter confection is a glorification of luxurious living in every frame.
As other postings suggest, this one boasted a cast who seemed to enjoy the nearly impossible task of suspending our disbelief at the scriptwriters' fanciful whimsies. Mr. Hunter always candidly disavowed any intention of putting anything approximating a recognizable reality on the screen and for this one he made sure that the jewels, the gowns, the Rolls-Royces and all the other accouterments of life at its most opulent were on constant display. The end result may not merit high praise but, as a pleasant diversion, it's a pretty good example of Hollywood escapism in the mid-Sixties and I suspect that a video release would be a welcome treat.
