Good grumpy old Otto seems to in love with Maggie and hier ingenue agresiveness. But its more in dialogue than in gestures and mise en scene. Too speechy for suc a gret director. Holden and Niven ok, even Dawn Addams.

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.

"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. "
