When the MacKays are in the taxi going to his first play as a critic, they pass the Winter Garden Theatre at 1634 Broadway where the musical "As the Girls Go" is playing. That show ran from November 1948 to July 1949 - meaning the rear-projection film being used in that scene was over ten years old. See more »
When Doris Day puts on her black evening gown near the beginning of the movie, she has on a black slip with straps. She adjusts the straps of the gown over the straps of the slip. Later, when she and David Niven are eating dinner in a restaurant, the strap of the dress slips off her shoulder, and there is no slip strap. See more »
i really like this film. unlike some other reviewers i think the chemistry between niven and day is strong - they presented like a genuine married couple. the script is versatile, witty on the one hand, but also able to shift to the more dramatic. the argument between day and niven as he reveals his desire for professional success is very well done. niven himself was laugh out loud funny on many occasions, and the portrayal of parenthoood was quite charming. the song at the school doesn't do anything for me, so i tend to fast forward past that scene. however that is a matter of personal preference: i enjoy doris day as an actress much more than as a singer. it's an amusing, easy going, light hearted film, perfect for afternoon viewing.
