Trivia

Maureen O'Hara was injured on the set, O'Hara and Jackie Gleason were in the middle of a scene. O'Hara was sitting on a garden bench, the cushions had been removed exposing the cyclone fence wire that supported them. O'Hara's right hand was resting on the wire and as a very drunk Jackie Gleason was delivering his lines, he tripped and accidentally fell on top of her hand. The cyclone wire gave way and the weight of his body crushed her hand. She had to be rushed to the hospital; her hand required orthopedic surgery. As a result, she has no cartilage on the fingers of her right hand and is missing a joint on her index finger. See more »

unusual romantic comedy
18 July 2014 | by jonathan_lippmanSee all my reviews

rather strange but not without its merits. A comedy about religion and with Maureen O'Hara and Shelley Winters in the same film... but sadly no scenes together.. Jackie Gleason is the leading man and a odd choice of a husband for the beauteous Miss O'Hara. Rosemary Forsyth is the third lady in the cast, and a gorgeous lady in her own rite... Hard to really describe this movie cause it is rather unusual about a woman who fears for the mortal soul of her husband...It is worth a look if you can find it. NOt out on DVD and flopped at the box office upon release but as I am a big fan of Miss O'Hara I would see her read a phone book. It is one of her last feature films. I read somewhere that Gleason wanted Ava Gardner and Lana Turner for the two female lead roles; That would have been interesting too.. Check it out if you can find it.
