CGiii Comment

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.
