A riot
20 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Contrary to many snobbish movie critics, Did You Hear The One About The Traveling Saleslady is a laugh riot. Phyllis Diller is in peak form in this movie. I remember it fondly as a child and I wish that it would get released on DVD. The milking machine scene alone is worth the price of admission. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, do it. Just relax and let yourself be entertained. This was one of the many movies I saw at weekend matinées as a child. It ranks right up there with Hello Down There, Fluffy, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Oliver and Boy Did I Get A Wrong Number to name only a few. Many I have forgotten in my adult years but some have stayed with me as is the case with Traveling Saleslady.Some movies are not meant to be artsy and intellectual with a message. Some are meant for pure entertainment. Phyllis Diller delivers the goods.
