  1. Oh I really do love this film! I saw it just two months ago in all it’s techicolor splendor at the Film Forum’s Uiversal 100th Anniversary Festival (which I know was also out in LA) and was again ravished by the irresitible dialogue and breezy narrative. One of Henry mancini’s finest scores to boot! But Grant and Hepburn are marvelous!

  2. Grant and Hepburn are terrific in this, and there are so many hilarious, witty exchanges between them. I’d also like to give a shout-out to the supporting players like Coburn and Kennedy and Matthau, who were all terrific and memorable in their respective roles.

  3. Wow Sam, that’s awesome. If it played here, I missed it. I’ve been slacking big time on the retrospective screening opportunities in LA the last couple of years. It’s all I can do to keep up with the new stuff. The irony is that before I started blogging, all I paid attention to was the old stuff!

    Alison, this movie is sort of impossibly charming. So glad too that Grant had the good sense to insist that his character be turned more into a father figure than a romantic partner because he felt he was too old. Love that guy. There’s something too about this exchange that perfectly captures the off-handed charm.

    Good stuff.
