According to early publicity announced prior to JFK assassination, Polly Bergen's wardrobe for the role as first female president of the US was to have been designed by Oleg Cassini, favorite couturier of then-First Lady Jackie Kennedy. For whatever reason, costumes were ultimately designed by Howard Shoup, who received an Oscar nomination for his work. See more »

One joke comedy of female President and confused hubby
This is a one-joke film with Polly Bergen as the first woman to become President of the United States and Fred MacMurray as the befuddled "First Gentleman." It runs out of steam early on. An inexplicable Oscar nom went to the costumes, although there weren't any-just everyday clothing. It is worth seeing, however, for Bergen's few scenes as the no-nonsense, hard as nails President in her decision-making sequences. She'd have made a good one!
