Pass my new smoking jacket ...,
This review is from: Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Pass my new smoking jacket and slippers, because even though I don't smoke I still want to wear them to curl up in the armchair and watch this ageless movie one more time.
I've been a Cary Grant fan since seeing his older movies on television as a child, and the magic has never gone away. From his Hitchcock roles to the light comedies like this one, he is the epitome of charm, wry humour and superb comic timing. As Mr Blandings he uses not only his acting talents, but also the physical skills he learned as a young boy working with an acrobatic comedy troupe, plus the sheer force of his charismatic personality.
The wonderful Myrna Loy and Melvyn Douglas share the honours in a movie that looks and feels fresher than any updated remake could hope to.
If you ain't seen Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House, you ain't eatin' ham!
