Doris Day wrote in her 1975 autobiography, that this was one of the films she did not want to do, but was forced into it, because her husband and manager Martin Melcher, had power of attorney, and signed her up for it, without her knowledge or consent. She called this "an alleged comedy", of which she didn't remember very much, because she was in severe pain, on medication, and spent all of her time off-camera, in traction. See more »

this movie was next to the very last movie that miss day made....it has been criticized as being a terrible movie....i disagree....this movie has some very funny moments, mostly because of miss day but the cast is not bad.....most of miss day`s movies around this time were being laughed off with doris being wrongfully accused of trying to hold on to her virginity which was groundless because really if they were to examine miss day`s films, she actually was married in most of her films including this movie " where were you when the lights went out?" so really all those tired jokes about her playing a virgin all the time were and are, erroneous...while this movie is not the best movie she ever made, she still gives it her all and it is indeed worth watching and so interesting to see miss day take a movie such as this and milk it into a pleasing comedy, which, is a tribute to her talent and professionalism...have a great day with doris day!!
