Joan Howell, a young and pretty maid-for-hire, meets and begins dating wealthy New York City businessman Tom Milford. Embarrassed about bringing him back to her tiny apartment that she shares with her roommate Audrey, Joan brings Tom over to a fancy apartment that she cleans on a daily basis not knowing that it's his place. Tom plays along with the charade despite not knowing who Joan really is, while she tries to tidy up Tom's place not knowing who he really is. Written by Matthew Patay

Trivia

In one scene, Tom Milford (Bobby Darin) explains to Harvey Granson (Donald O'Connor) that the party scheduled for that night will celebrate the unveiling of the Statue of Liberty which took place 78 years ago that day. So the date of the party is 28 October 1964 since the unveiling of the Statue took place on 28 October 1886. See more »

fun and clean humor
27 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am so tired of violet, sexually explicit movies that if you took out all the bad language there would be no dialogue: this one is a delight. Yes it is silly, but such a nice change of pace.

There is a great deal of tongue and cheek humor from the 50's and 60's that younger generations might not understand, their loss.

It is nice to go back to a kind and gentler time.

I read some of the negative reviews about Sandra Dee, but I could name at least a score of current actresses from the same mold, but jaded by the current definition of talent that are popular but so much worse as actresses.

If you want something light and fun, it this a great film.
