- Director: Vincente Minnelli
- Writer: George Wells
- Producer: Dore Schary; George Wells
Incredibly, Wells won the Oscar for the lacklustre writing.
In the spirit of the rom-com couples; Hepburn/Tracey, Hudson/Day - Peck/Bacall do their best with a crap story.
The script is beyond dismal. The physical comedy is rather pathetic.
Minnelli directs without panache and having gay characters that aren't really gay is another shocking indictment on Hollywood and how they and the censors manipulated everyone.
Praise be that those days are gone - long gone.
When Mike Hagen and Marilla Brown marry after a whirlwind romance on the west coast, they return to New York to find that they don't have much in common.
