SYNOPSIS: A rich businessman and a young woman are attracted to each other, but he only wants an affair while she wants to save her virginity for marriage.

BOTTOM LINE: I thought I had seen all of the best Cary Grant film's until I came upon this little gem. He's been funnier and had more chemistry with some of his other leading ladies, like the Hepburns and Ms. Bergman, yet I couldn't tear myself away from the screen. In this version of boy meets girl, he plays a less than upstanding businessman who loses his heart to the attractive, but moral Ms. Day, who plays a girl who's tired of fending off cads just looking for a pretty face. The comedy comes into play as both of them, wildly attracted to the other, pretends to be someone they're not – her a playgirl, him a nice guy. Craziness ensues. The only problem is there's no real sexual tension between Grant and Day. The comedy bits work just fine, but I just didn't feel the desire. I have no problem believing that Day instantly falls for Grant, I just didn't believe she'd ever go all the way to win him. Grant is supposed to be a creep, but he's never really all that awful. In fact, if he bought me a whole new wardrobe and flew me to Bermuda, I wouldn't care one bit about a wedding ring. Of course, back then, ladies didn't behave in such a manner. Day's morality is way old-fashioned, however, it creates the very conflict that makes the movie funny, so how can you complain? A classy, light-hearted flick that's worth a tumble.
