Movie Info

This film version of the Broadway play of the same name was produced and directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Bob (Barry Nelson) is a divorced book publisher with a pile tax receipts and facing an audit from the IRS. At the insistence of his accountant, he must get together with his ex-wife Mary (Debbie Reynolds) to find out just what the pieces of paper mean. Bob is engaged to marry Tiffany (Diane McBain), the daughter of a wealthy New England family. When a snowstorm traps Bob and Mary in his apartment, their all night discussions lead to an eventual reconciliation in this amusing comedy. Tifanny graciously bows out of the picture when she realizes the two are still in love.

There must be some simple explanation of why Miss Kerr's play has run for so long, but I don't get it from this movie, which is two hours of conversational fuzz.

The dreary production never escapes its theatrical roots.
