Description by

Kirk Douglas plays best-selling novelist Owen Waterbury, an inveterate ladies man and diehard skirt-chaser. When gorgeous aspiring novelist Stephanie Gaylord (Laraine Day) becomes his secretary, he envisions yet another notch on his bedpost. She is not easily won over, however, and Waterbury soon finds himself in the unique position of wanting to live up to her high standards and leave his playboy days behind him. They marry, and the fun begins when his new wife discovers that his replacement secretary is also quite charming, intelligent, and beautiful. Can she trust him? This hilarious and heart-warming comedy presents Kirk Douglas at his best.

Product Description:

Successful author Owen Waterbury (Kirk Douglas) hires a new secretary who becomes disenchanted as she sees that he's more interested in ladies than literature. After numerous misadventures, she leaves him, only coming back if he agrees to marry her.

My Dear Secretary Movie Lover: from anonymous -- July, 30, 2003

This is a cute movie. Keenen Wynn's character is halarious. I was surprised to see "Granny" from the Beverly Hillbillies in the role as the maid! Super movie!
