When Cary Grant noticed an ad for a raincoat that he thought would be appropriate for Doris Day to wear in the picture, he called the owner of the company who made it. After explaining who he was and what he wanted the coat for, he was given the brush-off by the manufacturer, Norman Zeiler, who later recalled that he didn't believe it was Cary Grant. "So I told him if he wanted to see our collection, he'd have to come up himself. And he did." The much-imitated Grant, who usually made all his own calls and answered his home phone himself, often had that problem. People just couldn't believe it was really Cary Grant they were talking to.

This is a sex-comedy in which a sympathetic woman falls in love with a man not interested in marriage. Classic and light romantic comedy of the 60s with masters Doris Day and Gary Grant exhibiting considerable rapport even when are arguing. Day was probably the only Hollywood actress by time who could have handled this brand of bright comedy with kinks in such expert fashion. The film is one of the various starred by Doris Day during the 50s and 60s such as ¨Lover come back, Send me flowers, More over darling, Do not disturb, Glass bottom boat, Do not disturb¨ among others, with usual partner of Rock Hudson and eventually James Garner, Rod Taylor and Gary Grant. As secondaries appear Gig Young, he's ever better than habitual as the inevitable sidekick of the protagonist , John Astin also scores as a man with a lugubrious leer and besides Dick Sargent (bewitched) as nervous husband justly married. The screenplay gets funny lines and amusing situations written by Stanley Shapiro(also producer) which enable the actors to make the most of themselves. Furthermore, it displays a colorful cinematography by Russell Metty and and lively score by George Duning. The motion picture is well directed by Delbert Mann ( Separate tables, Desire under the Elms, Marty). The flick will appeal to Gary Grant and Doris Day fans.
