At about 14 min. into the movie: Zach (Dick Martin) has fallen through the hole left by the missing grate into the debris, before going into the "clean room". Covered with dirt, etc., he goes to talk with Bruce Templeton (Rod Taylor). Bruce brushes Zach off a little and then seats himself in his office chair and leans back a bit. Bruce's suit jacket has dirt and larger pieces of debris on it. A second or so later when he leans forward, his suit jacket appears completely clean. See more »

A Must have Wonderful Old Fashioned Comedy!
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has to be one of my all time favorite Doris Day movies. This movie I think showed her serious side and her funny side. Dom Deluise is at his most funniest. He made a really terrible spy. Rod Taylor,Dick Martin and Paul Lynn really worked well together in the movie. Sometimes you get comedy movies with no real plot and terrible acting. Even though this plot was a little far fetched. It worked okay. The acting was good. The producer's also took advantage of Doris Day and had her use her most wonderful voice to sing some songs in the movie. To me that was okay. I had to buy another copy of this movie, I wore out my first one. This is a must have for good old fashioned comedy!
