Cheers, Bill ... I may record this again. I made a DVDr of the film back in 2007 but at LP (rather than SP) its quality is probably not great ... if it still plays at all.

As for the film, it's not DD's best but it has so many good scenes that it's worth a re-visit ... I've seen it four or five times. The opening ten minutes or so (admittedly before DD appears on screen) are some of the funniest moments I've seen in any film: the dialogue interplay between James Garner and Edgar Buchanan, with Polly Bergen's interruptions, is wonderful ... almost so good that the rest of the film struggles to stay at this level. That said, James Garner's take on the hotel lift closing door scene is even better than Cary Grant's original.

Eve Arden steals every scene she in! She should have won at least 10 Oscars for Best Supporting Actress.

??? Eve ??? ... do you mean (character) Grace Arden ... as played by Thelma Ritter? If so, indeed, she was a superb actress (in this playing the role normally taken by Tony Randall).
