One Of My All Time FAVORITE MOVIES
21 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie at its original release and loved it. I then saw it on TV several times in the 60's and 70's but not since. I came to realize that it was the story of me and my wife who I HAD YET TO MEET. In 1990 I become Involved with my wife and called her "Mary Mary" and was unable to show her the reason until now. A great play on film. I think this is Debbie's best film and loved Barry Nelson in it. A movie for any couple who bicker all the time but truly love each other.

Recommend it highly. Suggest it as therapy for the Bickersons and funny to all others including granddaughters. Still timely in 2010 as well as the sixties. Has the beauty of white porcelslen.
