Author: moonspinner55 from las vegas, nv

It's a marriage merry-go-round when Deborah Kerr rather inadvertently divorces workaholic hubby Frank Sinatra while on vacation in Mexico; when he fails to make things right, she (once again) inadvertently winds up hitched to boozy best friend Dean Martin. Made during the time when films had become second priority to F.S. (Ol' Blue Eyes had earned his Oscar and, with some exceptions, it quickly became a downward spiral for him and the movies). This picture is quite plush and well-produced, but it's just a throwaway--a shame since the premise did have some interesting possibilities. Best part of the flick is Nancy Sinatra (barely out of her teens) and Tony Bill as the youngsters in love. The rest is a snooze. Happy Hour for the Rat Pack was finally over...closin' time guys! ** from ****
