Movie Info

In this romantic comedy, a remake of the 1943 film The More the Merrier, the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo have filled up all of the area hotels, much to the dismay of English businessman Sir William Rutland (Cary Grant). Answering an advertisement for a room to rent, Rutland ends up staying in the apartment of Christine Easton (Samantha Eggar) and her stuffy fiance, Julius P. Haversack (John Standing). After meeting up with an American Olympic athlete, Rutland invites him to stay in his room, and proceeds to attempt to fix him up with Christine. This was Cary Grant's last film appearance.more

At 62, Cary Grant made his last film in this amiable comedy, a loose, weaker remake of George Stevens' 1943 The More the Merrier.

Agreeable fluff romantic comedy.

Cary's last hurrah is pretty funny.

Tepid remake of The More the Merrier makes an unassuming swan song for Cary Grant.

Audience Reviews for Walk, Don't Run

Grant's last film ... and therein the reason to go there. And he's competent enough, given a few scenes wherein the old magic can shine, and by george, he's still got it. But the overall work, eh, not so much, a light and obvious love match-up interestingly set against the 1964 Toyko Olympic Games, with Grant as the matchmaker.

Grant's last movie! It's a remake of an older movie, which I liked better, actually, but this movie has a good cast and it's funny, so I liked it anyway.

Holy Cary Grant in his boxers! Loved that. Freaking priceless and it may have been his last film, but damn, he went out in style. Grant is easily and obviously the best part of this film and he is pure brilliance. Can't say quite as much for the story, but it was still a cute little romantic comedy and I'll give plot and setting a + for originality.
