Trivia

United Artists announced in 1969 that a film version of this show would be directed by Gower Champion (he directed the stage show) and starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke who both starred in Mary Poppins (1964). Champion was dissatisfied with the original ending from the Broadway show and wrote a screenplay that changed the ending to have the couple adopt twelve Korean children and remain in their home. The film was canceled in the spring of 1970 due to the then recent financial failure of musicals at the box office. See more »

Acceptable Screen Adaptation of a Great Broadway Musical
9 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lee Remick and Hal Linden take on the roles of Agnes and Michael in I DO! I DO!, the musical adaptation of THE FOURPOSTER, which follows 50 years of marriage of a couple and the bumps they encounter along the way in married life. Mary Martin and Robert Preston originated these roles on Broadway and made this two-person musical a unique and enjoyable musical experience and that is the problem with this adaptation...this musical was truly meant for the stage and it definitely looses something being transferred to the TV screen. The score by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt (THE FANTASTICKS) includes "I Love My Wife", "Love Isn't Everything", "Nobody's Perfect", and the classic "My Cup Runneth Over." Remick and Linden work hard in their roles. Remick shines especially when she lets loose on the showstopping number "Flaming Agnes". but this musical is definitely better suited for the stage.
