Trivia

The New York Times critic noted in his review of this film on May 27, 1967, that "? of all the witty demonstrations, one of the most amusing..." in the film was when Jayne Mansfield loses her bra in the home of Terry-Thomas. The sex symbol's two-minute cameo was shot under great personal distress, however. Filmed in mid-December, 1966, at the time, Zoltan Hargitay - Mansfield's youngest son with Mickey Hargitay - was recovering from spinal meningitis at Conjeo Valley Community Hospital, after undergoing brain surgery resulting from his being mauled by a lion in a freak accident at the Jungleland Park in Thousand Oaks, CA, on November 26, 1966. Zoltan spent exactly one month in the hospital, returning home to Jayne's "Pink Palace" on that year's Christmas morning. And though several Mansfield films would be released after her untimely death six months later, the scenes in this one were, as an actress, Jayne Mansfield's final moments before the professional movie cameras.

Quotes

Paul Manning: Do all married guys do it Ed?
Ed Stander: No, maybe there comes a time in every marriage when a guy considers it but not all of them give in to it, only 43%. Which I think is about to go up to 44%.

Hilarious laughfest from beginning to end
24 August 1998 | by See all my reviews

The scene with joey Bishop and Ann morgan-Gilbert ("Deny, Deny, Deny") has to be one of the 3 funniest scenes EVER filmed in Hollywood! Fantastic! And timely too, it is certainly advice that Bill Clinton should have taken to heart !!!
