"...Holliday and co-star Aldo Ray give performances they never surpassed..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Fresh from the tremendous critical and commercial success of Born Yesterday, this role for Holliday proved she was not only a wonderful comedic actress, but also excellent with pathos as well. Newcomer Ray, formerly employed as a town constable, received unanimous critical acclaim and would work next again with director Cukor in Pat And Mike starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
- Extensive location shooting was done in New York; several scenes were shot at a real New York post office.
- Cukor recommended that star Aldo Ray go to ballet school because he walked too much like a football player.
- For the memorable 4th of July picnic flashback, Cukor relied for inspiration on a production of Chekov's THE CHERRY ORCHARD.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 4 ratings.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes the conflict of married life. It is both comedy and a bit of drama. Aldo Ray is fabulous in his first movie appearance. Judy and Aldo provide a realistic and believable chemistry. A pleasant surprise.
