Movie Info

When romance writer Owen Waterbury (Kirk Douglas) meets Stephanie "Steve" Gaylord (Laraine Day), he offers her a job as his secretary. Steve, a would-be writer herself, accepts the position but is quickly dismayed by Owen's shabby work ethic and distracting visitors, including Ronnie (Keenan Wynn), his rowdy, mischievous neighbor. Despite their differing outlooks, Owen and Steve get married, but artistic and romantic jealousy just might tear them apart.

Audience Reviews for My Dear Secretary

  • Sep 19, 2018
    Kirk Douglas as a womanizing author of romance novels, who's field of play is his own apartment where he woos the latest batch of secretaries he "hires" as he creates his next book. Keenan Wynn has the impossible task as Douglas' best friend and ... umm, comic relief, maybe. Laraine Day has the impossible task of selling us that she doesn't mind the out-of-control woman hating in this feature. No doubt this can be seen as some sort of cultural curiosity, or under-the-table commentary, but I didn't like it.

    You know how it will end just by reading the title, but this is a funny and entertaining movie with a great cast, so it's worth seeing.
