Aside from its candor, however, and its audacity with the words, The Moon Is Blue is not outstanding, either as a romance or as film.
Despite the fuss at the time, there's little blue about this except the title.
For all the movie's staginess and datedness, it's a more personal and ambiguous work than it initially appears to be.
Known today because it challenged the Hollywood Production Code.
No one today is likely to mistake this smarmy little sex farce for a good film, but it is significant historically as one of the nails in the coffin of Hollywood's self-imposed Production Code.
A landmark of its time -- and a very dull one.
The nothing about which there was so much ado is a tame little moral comedy about a determined virgin, who refuses to be seduced by a playboy architect.
Preminger likely was proud of this film pushing the Code's seal of approval and Niven thought enough about it to name his autobiography after it but it really isn't much to write home about. Holden and Niven who are so fantastic in other roles are terribly flat.
Silly comedy once notorious for it's use of the word virgin is now just dated nonsense.
What a shame. One of the best movies I've seen and there's almost no one that has seen it. The script is absolutely brilliant. So is the acting. So is the imagery. Perhaps one of the most overlooked movies ever?
