| Prentiss-Hutton Star in a Wonderful Comedy
MGM had several fine players under exclusive contract in the l960's: George Peppard, Richard Chamberlain, Yvette Mimieux and Jim Hutton and Paula Prentiss. This film is one of the 4 Pairings that MGM made with Hutton and Prentiss and is my favorite film of that team and one of my favorite comedies of the l960's. Great movie teams have magic: Loy and Powell, Tracy and Hepburn, Lemmon and Matthau, and for sure Hutton and Prentiss. Hutton conveyed a manly comedic skill set and Prentiss from San Antonio a gorgeous tall Texan with a sexy voice. Richard Thorpe moves the action skillfully and so what most of the movie seems to have been filmed on the MGM back lot, it is a Fun film with all the top notch MGM production values and special effects. This film is so enjoyable one wonders why MGM let them stop filming as a Team after this film. They were announced for a comedy And Now To Bed about a playboy played by Hutton and an interior decorator played by Prentiss but both stars passed on that film. Too bad. One never tires of these two professionals. Fine support from a cast of well known character actors.

I recommend this movie
