A classic film with a great cast.
It was Cary Grant's last film and he went out in style in this gentle comedy.
Yes it has characters which are sterotypical of the time. The bumbling Russian spy, the uptight English Embassy official.
But enjoy it in the spirit it was made and it's a nice gentle comedy filmed during the Toyko Olympics.

Sir William Rutland (Cary Grant) British industrialist is in town two days early. This is during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and there is no where to stay. He finds an apartment to sublet from Christine Easton (Samantha Eggar) who posted it not even dreaming that a male would answer her ad. Later Steve Davis (Jim Hutton) an Olympic competitor is also early and sublets from Sir Rutland's sublet. On top of this Christine's fiancée works at the British embassy and must maintain a proper background. Now you see the makings of a good comedy.
I learned to make coffee from this movie (a unique proportion of grounds to water) and there are many parallel mysteries as just what sport does Steve Davis compete in?
Being Grants last movie surly did not slow him down and he has those Grant expressions down pat.

This is the best film of its era. It is funny, with many twists to the romantic story that means you can watch this movie again and again without it ever becoming boring. If you are looking for a timeless classic then this film will be right for you. Especially if you are pleased to hear that cary grant is not the romantic lead in this movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars "I wouldn't know what to do in the bathroom all day!" 6 Dec. 2004
By M. Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In 1966, Cary Grant retired from his distinguished 34-year acting career after starring in the lighthearted romantic comedy "Walk, Don't Run". Set in Tokyo, Japan during the 1964 Olympics, Sir William Rutland (Cary Grant, 1904-1986), a very wealthy British industrialist, arrived in Tokyo two days ahead of schedule and the lavish Okura Hotel (where he is supposed to stay) has no rooms available. In fact, the Olympics have placed a giant "no vacancy" sign across the entire city of Tokyo. Frustrated, William goes to the British Embassy to seek out assistance in locating a room. There, he is seen by the snobbish & indifferent Julius P. Haversack (John Standing) whose attitude changes towards Sir William upon discovering who Sir William is. Sir William wanders out of Mr. Haversack's office and finds a bulletin board with a advertisement to share an apartment. Desperate to have a place to sleep, Sir William grabs the advertisement and travels to its address. Upon arriving, the woman who rents the apartment, Christine Easton (Samantha Eggar), doesn't want to share her apartment with a man, but is unable to convince Sir William to leave and reluctantly allows him to stay. The following day, while Sir William is conducting business with a Japanese company, he comes across an American busily taking pictures and making notes about the building's architecture. The American, Steve Davis (Jim Hutton, 1934-1979), is part of the American Olympic team, but is reluctant to discuss which event he is in. Also, insufficient room in the Olympics' housing has left Steve homeless, so he immediately latches upon Sir William to stay with him. Of course, Miss Easton is not particularly happy to discover that Sir William has sublet his part of the apartment, but again very reluctantly lets Steve stay as well. Of course, this creates even more havoc for everyone to try and use the apartment's single bathroom. Over the course of the film, it is revealed that Miss Easton is engaged to the unpleasant Mr. Haversack at the British Embassy, but Sir William would like to see the single Steve woo Miss Easton instead.

Other memorable characters in the film include Miss Easton's friend Aiko Kurawa (Miiko Taka), Steve's Russian friend & fellow Olympian Yuri Andreyovitch (Ted Hartley), the dimwitted KGB agent Dmitri (Ben Astar, 1909-1988), Aiko's parents (Teru Shimada, 1905-1988, and Lois Kiuchi) and the young boy & girl that often sit on the stairs inside the apartment building (Craig Matsunaga & Patty Siu). Fans of "Star Trek" will no doubt recognize George Takei playing the police captain. George Takei is known more for his repeated role as Lt. Hikaru Sulu in the original "Star Trek" series from 1966 to 1969 and the first six "Star Trek" films between 1979 and 1991. Memorable scenes in the film include Sir William at the Okura Hotel, Sir William meeting Mr. Haversack, Sir William arriving at Miss Easton's apartment, their first morning together, Steve meeting Miss Easton, the night at the Japanese restaurant (where Sir William proceeds to eat ham & eggs), the boat trip, Aiko's family, the police station, the race and the closing scenes. Overall, I rate "Walk, Don't Run" with 4 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a fun & lighthearted romantic comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Hilarious 30 Oct. 2006
By Colleen10014 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Walk, Don't Run was a delightful surprise. It was Cary Grant's last movie, in which he proves that he's not only gorgeous and charming, but also a king of comedy. Whether searching for a pair of elusive pants, playing with an ubiquitous couple of Japanese children, or "dropping by" one of the Olympic races, there's no one funnier than him. A very good movie and an unforgettable star.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I don't know that I like tricky people." 20 July 2010
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Even old as he is at this stage in 1966 (he was around 62), it's still weird to see Cary Grant onscreen playing matchmaker instead of playing the field. Still, he accomplishes even his matchmaking role with his usual style and grace, and you get the feeling that he could've stolen Samantha Eggar from under Jim Hutton's nose if he put his mind to it. After all, the man is Cary friggin' Grant. Guy invented debonair.

Mr. Grant plays Sir William Rutland, a happily married gent and industrialist on a business trip to Tokyo, except that he's arrived two days earlier than scheduled and his room reservation doesn't kick in yet. Sir William picked a pretty awful date to show up, his visit coinciding with the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, and there is a horrible housing shortage. Luckily, he gets wind at the embassy of a woman willing to take on a roommate, and it's a never mind that Sir William learns that the woman had intended to let only to fellow women. Sir William being played by Cary Grant, he eventually wears down Christine Easton, his new British "landlord."

WALK DON'T RUN made me sad a bit because I knew going in that it was Cary Grant's swan song, the man leaving cinema behind still near the height of his powers. And while WALK DON'T RUN doesn't succeed in all its stabs at levity, it did make me smile in places. Some of the comedy derives from the lovely Christine Easton (Samantha Eggar) being such a precise and super-organized woman. It's a real joy to see that Grant still has masterful control of what he does best, which are those bemused sidelong glances and double takes. He showers these on Christine as she meticulously breaks down the bathroom time table for him. In fact, she literally breaks the morning schedule down to its exact minutes, and a confounded Sir William soon wails: "What time do I shower? 7:35 or 7:37?" We're not too surprised when it's revealed that Christine Easton is engaged to an officious embassy official aptly named Julius P. Haversack. And, later on, there's also some fun with mysteriously vanishing trousers.

While out and about Sir William meets and takes a liking to young architect-slash-Olympic athlete Steve Davis (Hutton) who also had flown in two days ahead of schedule and is looking for lodgings. Sir William offers half of his room and board, and maybe he should've consulted with his landlord first, because she ends up livid (but remember this is Cary Grant so she inevitably capitulates). Steve, of course, would have to be inducted into the pinpoint time table regarding bathroom use. There's a vague air of mystery, by the way, in Steve's recurring evasiveness concerning the nature of his Olympics event. He hems and haws for most of the movie, and no wonder. Sir William would later proclaim of Steve's event: "This is THE most ridiculous race."

Cary Grant plays the busybody Cupid but, here's the thing, the movie audience is ever aware that it's Cary Grant in the room, even old as he is. And so, Jim Hutton, cast in the romantic role and who is to "bland" what Grant is to "charming," stands no chance; he withers under the comparison. Hutton's romance with Samantha Eggar feels rather shallow and convenient. And Hutton and Eggar together can't come up with any bits of humor. Instead laughs come by either thru a combination of Grant and Eggar or Grant and Hutton or Grant with both Eggar and Hutton. There's also a tired bit about a fumbly Russian minder minding a Russian Olympian. It's not very funny.

For Star Trek freaks, George Takei (the original Lt. Sulu) has a cameo late in the movie as a police captain who determines whether our central characters are, in fact, spies.

WALK DON'T RUN is a remake of George Steven's sublime THE MORE THE MERRIER - and if you haven't seen that one, you are seriously missing out on a classic wartime romantic comedy. WALK DON'T RUN, sadly, doesn't live up to the original picture. Equal parts of blame must go to the rather flat screenplay and Jim Hutton who is to "bland" what Gran- oh, never mind. Just know that Cary Grant effortlessly carries the movie, convincing me to rate WALK DON'T RUN 3.5 out of 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars You gotta love Cary Grant! 11 Sept. 2011
By SuzFromMN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I pine for Cary Grant to this day! Even in his older years, he was charming as ever. "Walk Don't Run" is a pleasant remake of "The More the Merrier" (1943) starring Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea and Charles Coburn (which is a great film by the way.) Mr. Grant plays an affable yet slightly devious matchmaker. The Tokyo Olympics served as a beautiful backdrop for this quirky, romantic comedy. The gorgeous young couple, played by Samantha Eggar and Jim Hutton, were teasingly fun to watch. (Will she let go of her routines? Can he admit to his feelings?) I love watching older films, if not simply for the wonderful ability to step back in time. These were delightful characters to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed this film.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Cute, Adorable and fast paced dialog. 23 May 2016
By Russell S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
From 1970 we have one hell of a cute and charming movie that takes place in Japan during the Tokyo Olympics. There are no places to stay, anywhere so Cary Grant who had arrived 2 days sooner then his reservation will allow must find a place to stay and answers an ad but the ad is from a young lady and he has to talk his way in and he does, Samantha Eggar lets him stay. Cary in the meantime meets an Olympic athlete with no place to stay, Jim Hutton, and Rents half of his half much to the chagrin of Miss Eggar. What follows are quick quips and one-liners. Cary is particularly good at this. Will a romance bloom and between who or whom? It is just a cute and sweet movie that you will smile about all the time.
