David Thomson once wrote that it was "sad for any moviegoer to have no great star burning during his most impressionable years. Many stars, no matter how well they survive passing time, are only eminent because of the way they first mark consciousness. Once penetrated, we never forget the scar." Paula Prentiss had this effect on me in the early 1960s, and her role in Howard Hawks' 1964 screwball comedy as Abigail Page, was decisive. In years when Doris Day was a role model for many women, along came Paula as an aggressive and beautiful PR professional announcing the "new woman." This role helped to pave the way for future self-asserted female film characters. At 24 years old, Paula was placed besides Rock Hudson, a big star who was the masculine prototype for most filmgoers, playing a fake fishing specialist. She forces him to enter a tournament, falls in love, and finally wins the battle. Although all the praise usually goes to Paula, Rock Hudson also gave one of his best comedy performances ever, with strong support from Maria Perschy and seasoned Hawks regulars.
