Description by OLDIES.com:
No sex, please -- we're on our honeymoon! After a showgirl (Debbie Reynolds) and an Air Force sergeant (Glenn Ford) head to the altar on the basis of one torrid smooch, the bride begins having second thoughts. After all, marriage can't be based on sexual chemistry alone. So she decrees a month of connubial celibacy to test if the newlyweds are really meant for each other. Think they'll make the whole 30 days?
Funny, frisky and (just a bit) risque, Reynolds and Ford aren't the only joys in this romantic comedy set in and around a Madrid U.S. air base. Other pluses include a strong supporting cast, exotic Spanish locales and a glamorous, plot-promoting red Lincoln Futura, which found fame a few years later as TV's Batmobile.
Debbie Reynolds steals this show as Maggie, a showgirl dying to marry rich, but ready to live poor after she plants her lips on hunky Glenn Ford. Ford is penniless air force sergant Joe Fitzpatrick, whose good luck wins him first prize in a raffle--a forty thousand dollar car. When Fitzpatrick is transferred to Spain, not only do the wife and car follow, but so does trouble. His C.O. is highly suspicious of Fitzpatrick's good fortune, and a highly celebrated toreador is more than a bit jealous. If this weren't enough trouble, wife Maggie becomes worried that Fitzpatrick only married her for her looks, and decides to cut off all conjugal relations with Joe to make sure. With costar Eva Gabor making a big noise and light-handed director George Marshall at the helm, IT STARTED WITH A KISS is nothing but 1950s fun.
