Ripe off of His Girl Friday
12 April 2016 | by dwoo522@nyc.rr.comSee all my reviews

While this move is entertaining has some good performances, much of the script pulled word for word from His Girl Friday. But having Keenan Wynn talk about his dimple is very different than Cary Grant. They changed the story from a newspaper setting to a show biz one. Most importantly, this version allows for scenes for Ann Miller to dance, and does not allow for the ad libs that Cary Grant and Rosalind Russel did in the original. While this movie has its moments, it does not hold a candle to the original. Not sure way they copied the script, other then to save money. However it is nice to see some normally supporting actors, like Wynn, in lead positions.
