At the film comes to the classical "The End" over the final shot of the two main characters in background, instead of the usual fade-out, Columbia Pictures added the advertisement: "You have just seen our New Personality - ALDO RAY - Please watch for his next picture." In the background, a short sequence of Aldo Ray speaking (no dialogue heard - simply the remaining ending score) in a bedroom setting seen in the movie. See more »
This movie reminds me a lot of Penny Serenade, but Aldo Ray is no Cary Grant. And, while Judy Holliday is one of the greatest comedy actresses of all time, and is marvelous at showing a broad range of emotions, this character is disturbingly all over the compass, and it is impossible to get a handle on her. The gallows-humour-out-of-the blue turn that this movie takes is jarring and disturbing. Certainly the dialogue is sharp and well-written, and the supporting cast is terrific. Maybe the interjuxtaposition of satire, screwball comedy, tragedy, and pathos is sheer genius, but I just was left numb.
