Audience Reviews for This Happy Feeling


Best part of this movie is the seagull and Mrs Early (the housekeeper).

Extremely charming, sadly obscure comedy with a stellar cast. Debbie is most appealing, Curd Jurgens full of continental brio, Alexis Smith saucy and sly, John Saxon very handsome and Estelle Winwood an absolute sketch as the spacy housekeeper Mrs. Early. Catch it if you have the chance.
