Trivia

The partially obscured poem on the blackboard behind Arnold and Arlette is the third verse of P.B. Shelley's "Good-Night" poem. The complete verse is "To hearts which near each other move; From evening close to morning light, The night is good; because, my love, They never say good-night". See more »

Goofs

When Arlette reads the second verse of P.B. Shelley's "Love's Philosophy" she says "What's all this kissing worth, if thou kiss not me". The correct line is "What is all this sweet work worth, if thou kiss not me". See more »

Quotes

Julie Dickson: I can't make her out, Pat. She's beastly to Daddy and then she asks me to her party. And if I refuse to go, it might make things more awkward for Daddy.

Not so romantic
20 November 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The first thing to be said is that nearly all the schoolgirls are played by actresses who are well over 18 years old.Mai Zetterling was 24 years old.It is difficult to know if this was looked on as a romantic comedy.Noways it wouldn't get made because the Hugh Williams character would loose his career and end up in prison for a couple of years.
