I've always loved this film; it's one of Doris' best and has a great opening song and sequence. Doris plays a widow who works at NASA. Rod Taylor plays a physicist who falls in love with her, and tries to get her to fall in love with him. Arthur Godfrey plays Doris' father, who runs a glass-bottom boat in Catalina. Some of the idiots at NASA decide that Doris is a spy, and there's lots of chases and red herrings as Paul Lynde (a security guard), Dick Martin (Rod's business partner), and Edward Andrews (playing a General), all try to unmask her. Doris decides to beat them at their own game when she overhears a phone conversation, and outspy's everyone. Paul Lynde gets to dress in a blue satin formal, and Rod finds Dick Martin and Edward Andrews in bed together! The whole thing is a real hoot, and you'll love those late 60's fashions and hairdo's.
It's all a lot of harmless fun, and look quick for Robert Vaughn during the party scene!
