GREAT 1958 romantic comedy with fab performance(s) by Rosalind Russell. Lots of fun to see this sophisticated film which I was too young to understand (or be interested in) when it originally came out.

That scene towards the end breaks my heart. Has it's moments. Family movie

Overemphatic, overplayed, stagey, self-conscious, self-referential, AND THEN SOME. Roz is a force of nature as a comedian in more balanced efforts, but here they supply her with a wind machine AND a bullhorn. And those fade-outs that briefly illuminate her poses before the screen goes to black? Well, Mary Magdalene never looked so iconic. You want great Roz? Catch His Girl Friday or The Women. You want a migraine? Catch this one.

Inspired filmmaking with the incomparable comedienne Rosalind Russell. If you have never seen in, watch it. If you haven't seen it in a while, do yourself a favor and watch it again. I love introducing these classic movies to my 13 year old daughter who enjoys them immensely.

I accidently had the caption screen on while watching this film. The captions do not capture the quick and sly patter that Rosalind Russell says. The movie overall is fabulous. The feature section is okay. You get to review the film history of Rosalind Russell, but no other cast members. There is a section in which you can watch the movie sans dialouge, a coup for fans of muscial scores. There is also a trailer for the Lucille Ball edition. Skip that if you watched the movie before hand. It is like eating ice cream first before meatloaf.
