After his Rolls Royce accidentally splashes her dress with mud, New York City executive Philip Shayne (Cary Grant) sends an employee to apologize to Cathy Timberlake (Doris Day)… but she wants to hear it in person. One of the most popular movies of that year is in the same style as the director’s Lover Come Back (1961), which also starred Day. Grant and her is the main reason why this silly “sex farce” is worth a look. Contrived at times, but the stars are fun to watch and the dialogue is packed with witty one-liners. Gig Young is also amusing in a goofy role as Grant’s financial manager – who desperately wants to lose his job!
