During their confrontation at the end of the movie when McCloud reveals the secret dealings in Senator Walsh's life, the Senator incorrectly calls it "libel" (a false written statement) instead of the correct "slander" (a false oral statement). The Senator is a lawyer who should know the difference between the two. See more »

Funny ... and catches the attention.
3 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Granted, this movie is not to be taken too seriously. Who would have given heavy thought to having a female president in 1964? However, I didn't find it insulting. It was simply a comforting little comedy starring top-flight actors.

As usual, the highly diversified Fred MacMurray was excellent as the husband of the female president. Polly Bergan, always in grand form, displayed her ability to capture her character perfectly ... as directed by Curtis Bernhart for Warner Brothers.

Also presenting good performances were the great Eli Wallach and beautiful Arlene Dahl.

This was the type of comedy that reflected what was expected on the "big screen" in 1964. Filming it in Black-and-White was a good decision. Color would have taken away the simplicity that made it special.

It was 113-minutes of fun.
