One of the real dogs Doris made towards the end of her career, almost painful to watch.

There can be no denying the high camp-factor at play in this movie. It is quite bad. But, it manages to mix enough "way-out" mid-60's glam w/an uncomfortable Richard Harris and the constant comic mugging of Doris Day that you can't help but be entertained. And, oddly, there is a certain art at play with the way the sets are designed and filmed. But, this is one of those big budget cinematic errors that is fun to watch on a rainy day.

"Caprice" (1967) directed by Frank Tashlin is a zany romantic comedy adventure spy movie starring Doris Day as Patricia Foster, an industrial spy trying to get the formula for a new cosmetic hair spray that keeps Women's hair dry in water. Richard Harris is Chistopher White, the apparently double agent whose job is to simultaneously help her but also spy on her for her bosses rival. Doris Day's boss is Sir Jason Fox played by Edward Mulhare. Ray Walston plays Clancy, the apparent inventor of the hairspray. It's a fun romp of a film with a few twists and turns. One of the last film's shot in cinemascope. Good use of occasional slapstick, and I love the mid to late 60s Mod fashions and design. A pretty entertaining movie.

Caprice is a stylish and funny super spy film. It is about an industrial designer who gets herself into trouble when she sells a secret cosmetics formula to a rival company in Paris. Doris Day and Richard Harris give incredible performances. The screenplay is well written and witty. Frank Tashlin did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the comedy. Caprice is a must see.
