Jayne Mansfield agreed to make her topless debut in this film - the first nude scene in U.S. films since 1934 because the misbegotten Will Hays "Production Code" outlawed it - because she was in a career slump at the time. She hadn't had a hit since Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957), and her longtime studio was getting fed up. Fox dropped her contract after yet another dud, the historical riff It Happened in Athens (1962). But the nudity didn't help her career. Though it did indicate where films were heading in respect to the policy against nudity. From that point on, U.S. studios started adding more and more nudity, ignoring the weakening power of the Production Code and the puritanical government group behind it. See more »
Now then, just dissolve this in an alcoholic drink and take it down.
You mean to say that this pill is going to help me become a father?
I have every reason to believe it will.
Wow! What's in it?
Well, let us just say it will accomplish a purpose. Immediately afterwards, however, a temporary state of amnesia may occur.
There's nothing to worry about.
Oh, thank you, Doctor.
You're very welcome. 'Bye.

Delivers what it promises! promises! but is static and unfunny
This movie is considerate: it delivers what it promises (Jayne Mansfield topless) twice in the first 5 minutes - so you don't really need to bother with the remaining 70. Mansfield has a sensational body indeed (breasts as well as legs), but the film is more static and unfunny that smutty and scandalous. Tommy Noonan's drunken routine gets tiresome fast, T.C. Jones' gay-hairdresser routine is even worse. *1/2 out of 4.
