The idea of believing your spouse is dead and getting remarried just before they resurface definitely presents quite a quandary. I wasn't quite sure how it would be hashed out, but they pulled it off with great success and the results were downright hysterical! And although there was a great deal of comedy, proper emotion was inserted as well. Doris Day and James Garner worked very well together and it definitely brought to mind the screwball comedies of the 30's & 40s. In fact, this is a remake of a film called "My Favorite Wife" starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunn, released in 1940, but personally I prefer this version slightly. Hey, it even includes a cameo by Don Knotts. Who could ask for more?
