At one of his many visits to his doctor, hypochondriac George Kimball mistakes a dying man's diagnosis for his own and believes he only has about two more weeks to live. Wanting to take care of his wife Judy, he doesn't tell her and tries to find her a new husband. When he finally does tell her, she quickly finds out he's not dying at all (while he doesn't) and she believes it's just a lame excuse to hide an affair, so she decides to leave him. Written by

There is a small inside joke about half-way through the film. Doris day plays Judy Kimball. Clint Walker plays an old flame who calls her by her maiden name, "Judy Kappelhoff". Doris Day's real name is Doris Kappelhoff. See more »
Doris Day character fills a wastebasket with pill bottles in the bathroom, then goes to a window and dumps them on Rock Hudson character. She clearly empties the basket then, seconds later, she dumps more on him without ever going back to refill the wastebasket. See more »
Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall together make up a hilarious comedy trio. Rock Hudsons character is a hypocondriac (sp?) and mistakenly believes he is dying. He shares this news with Tony Randall's character and together plan his funeral and plan for Doris Day's character's future (She is his wife in the movie). Well scene after scene is so funny. I loved everything about the movie and it is one of my top 10 films of all times. I have it taped and watch it over and over. It is fantastic for a bad mood day, it will perk you right up!
