When a mysterious half-naked girl is seen running from a Palm Beach hotel room containing the deceased publishing tycoon Colonel Ryder, an overzealous private investigator tracks her all the way back to New York. It turns out that she is Katie Robbins (Shirley MacLaine), an employee of Ryder's research department. Ryder's nephew Paul (Dean Martin), the new president of the company, is assigned the task of discovering Katie's true "motives".
MacLaine and Martin have a brilliant comic chemistry in this bubbly, fast-paced romantic comedy. They had previously co-starred in "Artists and Models" (1955), "Some Came Running" (1958), "Career" (1959"), and "Ocean's Eleven" in 1960 (with "What a Way to Go!" as their follow-up to this movie in 1964).
Shirley MacLaine's delicious wardrobe was designed by Edith Head, with an underrated, jazzy score composed by Andre Previn. The strong ensemble cast includes Gale Gordon (aka Mr Mooney from "The Lucy Show"), Charlie Ruggles, Mabel Albertson, Jerome Cowan, Cliff Robertson, Norma Crane and Jack Weston.
The DVD features a sharp anamorphic print with a mono soundtrack and optional English subtitles. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).
is simply adoreable. but what other word can you use for Shirley? great pacing, with good twists & turns ---- not to mention Shirley's curves.
I'm tired of what passes for entertainment these days. Not that there aren't good movies and/or TV out there. Basically I'm not a fan of blood, gore or in your face sexuality. Call me old fashioned (or just old) but I enjoy having to use my imagination.
All in a Night's Work is silly, predicable and dated ... but it's also funny in a sweet old fashioned sort of way. I can watch it and not worry about developing night terrors or PTSD. I can forget about Ebola, antibiotic resistant ANYTHING, ISIS, and/or the end of the world.
One of my favorite lines is from the picture on the DVD cover(upper left). Dean states, "I was helping her into her coat." Cliff responds, "What was she doing? Crawling into it?"
Still a fun movie otherwise.
