| A delightful, charming movie
I liked this movie a lot more than most reviewers seem to have done. I do agree with the reviewer who noted that the introduction – out of nowhere – of a musical number was very jarring. And, of course, the whole premise of having a friendly pet alligator is silly. But that's okay because it's supposed to be a silly, whimsical movie. I don't recall ever seeing Jeannie Crain in a movie before but it is a name I knew. For some odd reason, I remember the Hey Jeannie television show from the mid-fifties when I would have been about eight. I vividly remember Jeannie singing, "You take the high road…" So it was a treat to be reminded of this memory. The movie was a showcase for so many well-known British character actors. While I didn't recognize them all, many I did and especially enjoyed seeing Holloway, Lawson, Hickson, and Rutherford. Hmmm. Two Miss Marples (and quite different portrayals at that!) in one movie. That's cool. I thought the movie was highly entertaining and certainly worthy of a second watching.
