Movie Info

In New York City, prim and proper would-be actress Patty O'Neill (Maggie McNamara) meets charming architect Donald Gresham (William Holden) and, despite learning he has a girlfriend and being wary of his intentions, accompanies him to his apartment for dinner. They meet Don's girlfriend, Cynthia (Dawn Addams), in the elevator, but she ignores both of them. Later, when Don goes to buy groceries, Cynthia returns -- as does her decadent father, David (David Niven), who Patty unexpectedly likes.

Audience Reviews for The Moon Is Blue

  • Jan 02, 2014
    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?
