I watched this recently by chance- absolutely charming! Clever writing, excellent timing and completely family friendly- without seeming dated. This movie has influenced me to take more chances, enjoy life more and recommend it to my three children-ranging in age from 11 to 27. Draws attention to the coincidences in life that may not be concidences and the opportunities that we may miss if we're not watching! One of the best of its genre and generation, in my opinion. I had forgotten how clever the writing could be in some of these old classics. If this is not counted as one of the classics, it should be and certainly is in my book. I will probably buy it!
