    This film never seemed to be as good as the catchy Burt Bacharach theme song, but it's still an enjoyable bit of fluff about Ann-Margret as an aspiring fashion designed and taken under the wing of designer Louis Jourdan. Margaret is great and is more overtly sexual in this film than many of her others. I seem to recollect that in most of her films she played a good girl but then when she starts singing and dancing turns up the sexual heat. In this film she's more overtly sexy throughout. A young Richard "Col. Trautman" Crenna also appears in the film.

    Looked from a modern perspective this film is horrendously sexist and there is cause for about a half dozen sexual harassment suits within the first fifteen minutes of the film. But if looked at as a product of its time it's a bright fluffy colorful comedy with a stunning Ann-Margret and for anyone who is a fan of fashion a real eye candy treat. The film is load with high fashion sixties designs and has a fashion show smack dab in the middle. The is also a very fun number of You've Got To See Mama Ev'ry Night (Or You Can't See Mama At All) performed by A-M and a dolled up Reta Shaw. A nice surprise for Miss Shaw's fans since she usually was cast as maids and crotchety spinster ladies, it's great to see her frisky and animated singing a spirited version of the tune.
