Ranked #69 Greatest Movies Through 1960, a Zagat Top Movie

A young man falls in love with a girl from a rich family. His unorthodox plan to go on holiday for the early years of his life is met with skepticism by everyone except for his fiancée’s eccentric sister and long suffering brother. IMDB 7.8 rating from over 6,696 users

This absolutely charming, wholly engaging romantic comedy is the hidden gem of the four collaborations of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. Most everyone’s seen The Philadelphia Story, but few know of this unorthodox, hilarious comedy of life among the rich and privileged. Amazon 4.7 stars from over 106 users

Dialogue and characterizations are note-perfect, and the story never missteps. This is one of the great ones. Decent Films A+ , superior artistic/entertainment value

Cary Grant began in show business as an acrobat, and you can see him show off some of that prowess in this movie. BeliefNet Movie Mom A+
