MGM wasn’t the most current studio in 1957, as can be seen by this throwback to another era, a semi-screwball romantic comedy with big stars and directed in high style by Vincente Minnelli. Gregory Peck and Lauren Bacall party like it’s 1939, and with the musical-comedy help of the irrepressible Dolores Gray, keep things light and mirthful. A score of fun actors provide support: Sam Levene, Tom Helmore, Mickey Shaughnessy, Jesse White and Chuck Connors as the mug that almost twists Peck’s nose off. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
