In the film's TV-viewing opening, Otto Preminger's film In Harm's Way (1965) is featured. Preminger always complained about having his films cut to pieces on TV. Thus, Carol Channing's character says, "No, I never watch films on TV . . . they always cut them to pieces." See more »
The film begins with a cartoon figure in striped prison clothing dancing across the film's title and Otto Preminger's credit on the main characters' TV set. The channel is switched by Jackie Gleason before any other names are revealed. See more »
Actually, I found this movie unforgettable. Unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. I happened across this plodding stinker one rainy Saturday afternoon way back in the '70's on TV, and sat there wide eyed in morbid fascination as to how bad it was. At first I thought the whole thing was a "piss-take", a send up, but after a while the awful truth sank in. The "plot" such as it is, has been described by others, but the molasses like leaden direction of Preminger has to be seen to be believed, as is the so called funny one liners, delivered by the actors with embarrassment. In fact, there's almost an embarrassed silence after some of them as if the actor is thinking "DidI really say that?" What the hell am I doing here?" Quite simply, a movie that should never have been made, except to show budding actors & directors and screenplay writers HOW NOT to further their careers.
