"Groundbreaking sex comedy by Otto Preminger, not approved by the Production Code. Story focuses on a love triangle; words such as "virgin", "seduce", "pregnancy", and "mistress" were prominently featured in the script and dialogue. "

" TV (RECORDED TO DVR) / New to me Date watched: 20th February, 2013 Project: Classics Why?: William Holden and David Niven. Haven't seen this one. Director: Otto Preminger Thoughts: I wasn't sure about this to begin with. It seemed like a standard old dull rom-com to start with, but then it turns into some kind of debate on society's views on such things. "

Maggie McNamara was nominated for an Oscar for her role in this movie (her first movie), but acting work quickly dried up for her thereafter. She only went on to star in three more films over the next ten years, including Three Coins in the Fountain in 1954 which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, and won for Best Cinematography. She appeared in a few television shows during the 1960s, including The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Hour, before succumbing to an overdose of” read more

" Well-bred people in the 1950s didn't use words like "virgin," "seduce" and "mistress" in public, but this mild sex farce did and became a cause celebre."

"18.9. Hulvattoman härski komedia, jossa lähes kaikki vitsit liittyvät seksiin. David Nivenin hahmo on niin niljakas, että hän repeilyttää koko ajan esimerkiksi tokaisemalla ruokapöydässä, että hän harvoin lyö muita kuin naisia. "
