Summary

Like I said, not our usual Guys' movie but I saw this again and I was so impressed with how well this movie flowed and how enjoyable it is to watch.  The book was literally written with Rosalind Russell in mind and as soon as she saw a draft she optioned it for the movie (the play came later (with Angela Lansbury in the lead role but eh damage had been done: no one could measure up to Rosalind Russell)). A number of character actors doing their part but Rosalind does all of the heavy lifting in this movie and it is a pure delight to watch, even today.
