This is one of a multitude of sex comedies Tony Curtis starred in
around this time in his career; incidentally, I had seen about half of
it some years back (also on Italian TV) but had to abort the viewing
due to a bad reception!
Anyway, if the film is at all remembered today, it is primarily for two
reasons: it not only marked the cinematic swan song of a great
director, but was also the official Hollywood introduction of the
beguiling but ill-fated Sharon Tate. Two more (if lesser) claims to
fame should be the undeniably funny Chaplinesque
‘house-teetering-on-the-edge-of-a-cliff’ climax and the fact that
leading rock band The Byrds perform the film’s rather charmingly light
Patchy and somewhat hesitant overall, it is nonetheless engaging and
occasionally delightful; the satirical barbs aimed at L.A.’s muscle
beach mentality (especially David Draper, the amiably moronic blonde
hulk who is Tate’s boyfriend), the then-current astrological fad and
businessmen indulging in extramarital activities often hit the target –
even if with a much blunter edge than in Mackendrick’s previous film
with Curtis, SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS (1957). Two other lively highlights
of the film are the initial ‘meeting cute’ between Curtis and leading
lady Claudia Cardinale (in which, as he tells her himself, she
inadvertently manages to ruin his whole life in 30 seconds flat!) and
the potentially disastrous sky-diving stunt performed by Tate and
(unexpectedly) Curtis, which ends with both of them landing in his
The film does benefit from a workmanlike cast: Curtis is in good form
as an opportunistic young man who, while being compulsively pursued by
the accident-prone Cardinale, becomes hopelessly infatuated with
luscious, free-spirited beach girl Sharon Tate (her effortlessly
sensual slow-motion exercises on the beach early in the film are quite
disturbing to watch now when one realizes that she would die so
horribly in less than two years’ time); Robert Webber is a swimming
pool company executive driven to his wits’ end by lover Cardinale and
the blackmailing schemes of Curtis, who soon shows his salesmanship
skills by selling a pool to Jim “Mr. Magoo” Backus (playing himself)
and a celebrity fortune-teller with the unlikely name of Madame Lavinia
(played by famed ventriloquist Edgar Bergen).
While it is undoubtedly Mackendrick’s least (i.e. most inconsequential)
film – and could well have been the reason why he left the profession
and went into teaching – it’s a tribute to his mostly unsung genius
that the film is as enjoyable as it is despite the evident flaws.
