Fantastic
4 August 2005 | by folsominc2See all my reviews

Delicious, fantastic movie, reminds you of the old-fashioned screwball comedies but with a flair of beauty and pure fun! The cabin sequence is, of course, the best, but everything from beginning to end makes you laugh and truly can be described as a pleasant escapism.

Music from three of the hottest singers at that time also tend to lend a large touch of class to this genre. One of the best released in 1964.

The interaction between Maurie Chevalier and Hermine Gringold was also very cleverly done and not overdone. The fact that she, in a way, "won" the battle of wills in the end brings about a cheerful factor in what is otherwise considered a formula situation.

One of the other better parts of the picture, of course, was the "fist" fight by Andy Williams and Robert Goulett. Amazingly enough, through all the punches, very little bruising and more teamwork involved than anything else.

And of course, you can't overlook the amusing seasoned actor, Charles Ruggles, whose stuttering and homey voice always makes me smile. :)
