Near the end of the movie Shirley MacLaine and Bob Cummings are on a couch which rises high into the air. In a medium shot there is a white lampshade in the background that is below his shoulder. In a following medium shot the bottom of the shade is bout 8 inches above his shoulder. In the next long shot the top of the shade is at least a foot below the bottom of the couch, a difference of about 4 feet between shots. See more »
In the 1960's, you could not argue with the star power of Shirley MacLaine. She was probably in at least twenty movies in that decade. This is a worthy showcase to her talent and hold ups well for the most part. The movie is very funny in parts and when its not out-and-out funny, you are still smiling. Its nice to see Paul Newman and Robert Mitchum in a light comedy, and Dean Martin and Dick Van Dyke were good also.
Margaret Dumont as Shirley's mother was very funny and I was sorry she was not in more scenes. All those years of sharing a screen with the Marx Brothers certainly rubbed off.
I would love to know which men were offered parts but did not appear in the movie - like, where is Jack Lemmon and Frank Sinatra and Peter Lawford?
Edith Head must have billed 20th Century Fox for a million hours of OT. She creates about six hundred costumes for Shirley and the guys. I think she got a nomination for this, but then again, in her case that's not saying anything special.
