Romantic comedies became coy sex chase comedies by the early 1960s, once Doris Day made ‘professional virgin’ a Hollywood career. This mistaken identity/crossed prevarications farce is better than most, thanks to charming performances by Jane Fonda and Rod Taylor, and a fine script by Norman Krasna, from his play. The story doesn’t dance around the issue of should she or shouldn’t she — the frustrated young heroine asks the question right out loud: ‘Am I supposed to sleep with a steady boyfriend?’ Also starring Cliff Robertson, Robert Culp, Jo Morrow and Jim Backus. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
