A fresh, funny gem that deserves the DVD treatment.
12 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Simply stated, I enjoyed this movie decades ago when it rain on TV, and I cannot believe it has yet to be released on DVD. Look at the cast. It's quirky, funny and mostly sweet with great location shots. I don't even recall seeing it on TCM, which is really strange. Does anyone out there know if it was ever even released on VHS? James Garner and Dick Van Dyke play off each other beautifully. The female characters are colorful and endearing to say the least. If you love the sixties, and crave a comedy that is original and just a little risqué, this movie is for you. Please! The DVD! Does anyone know what entity to contact to get this movie out there for fans to experience again?
