Henry J. Tyroone leaves Texas where his oil wells are drying up and arrives in New York with a lot of oil money to play with in the stock market. He meets stock analyst Molly Thatcher, who he falls in love with. Molly tries to ignore the attention he lavishes on, and keep the relationship strictly professional.
At the beginning (5:25) when the old lady steals the cab from James Garner, when she closes the door a cameraman, camera, tripod and microphone are all reflected clearly. See more »
Great Eastern Offshore Oil, cost 14 dollars a share... six-cent bid.
You mean we haven't unloaded *that* yet?
Well, it takes a while to unload the real dogs, Bullard.
My boy, somewhere in that vast, verdant ever-growing nation of ours must be people stupid enough to buy Great Eastern Offshore Oil. Find them.

I think that "Send Me No Flowers" is the best of these "Technicolor marvel" comedies from the 60's, but this is one of my favorites. (By "Technicolor marvel" I mean those films that were shot in primary colors even more intense than something like "The Adventures of Robin Hood", with unnaturally uniform lighting and sets and locations, but mostly sets, that are DisneyLand-clean-and-orderly. Doris Day seemed to be in about half of those movies, at least in my recollection.)
The movie is about James Garner as an oil-man having a run of bad luck, so he goes to New York to make some quick money. He finds big bucks and romance, and it makes me laugh. The fact that Louis Nye plays a parody of Jackson Pollock, and that Phil Harris, Chill Wills, and Charles Watts act as a sort of Greek chorus to Garner will give you some idea of how inconsequentially silly this movie is. There's even a securities trial at the end (the judge makes a comment at the beginning that is just thrown away -- I missed it the first time I saw the movie -- which I laugh about every time I think of it).
