Walter calls Catherine "Goody Two Shoes." This expression, which refers to a person who is ostentatiously virtuous, became popular with the publication of an English children's story "The History of Little Goody Two-Shoes" in the 1760s, but the phrase had been around since at least the 1670s.

The fuel cans at Salamau that Walter loads appear to be empty as they swing easily in the hands of both Walter and the man assisting him. It is also more likely that Walter would need diesel for his launch rather than petrol. See more »
No this is not one of the greatest comedies of all time, but it is one of Grant's best comedic performances. He is at the very top of his game. Every movement, every gesture is well nigh perfect. It looks effortless on his part but it is all well thought out. Grant doesn't so much steal his scenes as make all the other actors seem funnier. The usually pleasant Leslie Caron rises to nearly Audrey Hepburn status in his presence.
Film historian David Thomson called Cary Grant the finest actor in Hollywood history and Time critic Richard Schickel once called him "a technician of genius". Watch Grant closely in this film and see why.
