Some of the dialogue is a little stilted, and at times the film has the feel of a stage play about it, but it's always entertaining. The scene at the Bongo Club with an embarrassed Jim Gannon getting hot and bothered as his girlfriend performs her raunchy (for the time) night club act, is a real hoot. Gable plays the scene to perfection and his character's discomfort is all too apparent to the much amused Erica.
This is a much underrated (by the professional critics) comedy and it's a pity that the DVD offers nothing in the way of extras except subtitles and audio in various languages. The film clocks in at nearly two hours, but it's such a pleasant diversion that it doesn't feel that long.
These screen legends of yesteryear, never appeared in bad films, they were far more discerning than today's actors and actresses.
The transfer to DVD is excellent.
When you think of the great romantic couplings in cinema history, Gable and Day/Day & Gable, don't exactly roll off the tongue. It's actually a threesome, here, but in a typically innocent 1950's style, along with young upstart Gig Young.
As publishing editor, Gable goes along to a class led by lecturer Day, to prove that his trade cannot be taught but learned through decades of hard graft. Of course, he falls for her but has to contend with her psychologist fiance. In the days where all this 'psych' stuff was still mumbo-jumbo, for such a cynic, well - you can picture the juicy scenes that result, where each try to out-do the other to earn Day's affections.
It is a comedy, but an intelligent one but also engaging too, with little of the heady froth that Doris Day ended up doing later (many enjoy these, I know - I don't). The script is smart and knowing and Gable in particular has an especially arched brow and raised eye, adding to the overall enjoyment. It's crisply photographed in black & white and ably directed by George Seaton.
It's so funny and weather your'e a Doris fan or not, you'll love it!!
And the quality i really good
Yes, perhaps Clark Gable was a bit too old for the role.....but he plays it to perfection! One of Doris Day's best films along with "A Touch of Mink" with Cary Grant!
