Really funny movie!
two of us
We also see how people try to influence the president, the horse trading, even a woman that tries to seduce the first man to get her company publicity.

My friend was very happy with this movie she has been wanting for a while.

Kisses For My President, though horribly dated, is a fun romp in the tradition of Doris Day and James Garner. As much fun to watch as a Dialing-For-Dollars movie, the rampant sexism is so innocent, you can't help but enjoy it, especially held up against today's world and the role of women in government.
Outstanding for its accurate, detailed White House sets, the film is lush in its photography. Fred MacMurray is funny as the bumbling husband who has no clue what his role should be as First Gentleman (MacMurray was also obviously stumbling for a characterization since he had no real-life role models). Polly Bergen is fine, if a bit uneven, as Madam President. Most wonderfully silly of all, though, is Arlene Dahl as an old chum of the Prez who tries to steal away Fred. She is outrageous in that Zsa Zsa kind of way.
In this time of Presidential jadedness, when there is no more innocence, Kisses For My President is silly and fun and a reminder of simpler days.

There's good and bad in this picture, we get an intimate view of what is like to be a president, the separate bedrooms for the husband and wife, the secret service. We also see how people try to influence the president, the horse trading, even a woman that tries to seduce the first man to get her company publicity. And I love the stories of how the two children, a teenage daughter and a young son, get in trouble. The boy becomes a bully because the secret service protects him and the girl and and a boy named Sneaker proceed to drive like crazy. HOWEVER, the ending was absolutely ridiculous (spoiler alert), she gets pregnant, faints, and resigns her job because the doctors tell her it's what she has to do to save her baby. Really? I realize women get maternity leave, but it's not like she's working a hard job like lumberjack or fishermen, she's the president for crying out loud, it's a desk job. How hard can it be? These people have assistants that do everything for them, they don't even have to write their own speeches if they don't want to. Frankly, the ending suggests that we can't have a woman president because God forbid she gets pregnant, she'll be useless.

A movie about a woman president. How can I resist that? It's 1964 and 40 million women have voted for the first ever woman president. (Wouldn't that have been nice?)

She takes over the oval office and her husband is just lost. He (Fred MacMurray) gets the canopied bedroom and the office full of pictures of former first ladies and nobody knows how to address him. First man doesn't have a nice ring to it, does it? I'm interested to see how this is handled when it really happens.

A comedy, the movie has many LOL moments as the "first man" locks himself out of the living quarters in his pajamas, ends up in a bit of a brawl in a strip club, and just has one unfortunate event after another. My favorite scene is when he attempts to give a tour of the White House, on camera, after having a few too many....errr..pills and drinks to calm his nerves. Priceless! Hilarious!

Meanwhile, the president's children are using their new status to get away with things, like the little boy threatening everyone at school and then using his Secret Service agents to protect him.

I laughed quite a few times, but the best part of the movie was watching a lady president, a no-nonsense woman, handle all the men who came her way, from a belligerent and threatening senator, to a somewhat amorous dictator. And of course, I loved the clothes. I love the sixties' clothes. And the actress (Polly Bergen) just did a superb job. She carried herself with grace and looked and acted the part superbly.

I enjoyed this movie, laughed often, got a kick out of it, but the ending...everything just came crashing down into a HUGE disappointment for me. I'm not going to give it away, but it's awful. Worst ending they could have come up with.

This movie has been one I've wanted to see for years, but it seems it was buried in the vaults of Hollywood for some reason. Along with it's too fine stars (Fred McMurray and Polly Bergen), it boasts superior production values. It's set of the White House is very accurate. It didn't do gangbusters at the box office, no doubt because the 1960 election introduced the exciting Kennedys. I'm glad that Warner has given it a second life on a remastered version via DVD . Both interesting and harmless. Check it out.

Nah... This movie was a real bore; this coming from a woman who loves old movies, mind you. The acting feels more forced than most older movies, and I kept looking for the point of this thing. President getting pregnant and being told she has to resign, was unrealistic even back when this movie was made. Had a woman been president back then, she would have been a lot stronger than this movie president is. Not recommended.

Most of the scripting in this movie is really dated, but Polly Bergen does a good job with the material which she had to work with. Of course, this owes to the fact that she is an awesome actor to begin with.

Fred MacMurray gives an equally compelling role as the First Gentleman. Frankly, since he was playing a role which was actually disparaged when this film was made (the idea of a dominant wife/subservient husband was-then scandalous) he deserves additional kudos for having to 'climb uphill'. His character has to put-up with now-riddiculous ideas for anybody but he also comes through the screenplay like a champ.

The sets are really well designed. The production department wanted viewers to feel as if they are in the White House during this film. The viewers are supposed to balance the-then absurdity of a woman president with the reality of the White House looking basically as it should.

The only thing I hated about this movie (again owing to its datedness) was that the President resigns when she is pregnant. There is a somber announcement from the White House as if the president has died or committed a serious crime against the country. I recognize this film was made when most American companies lacked maternity leave/had pregnancy discrimination, because a pregnancy is now not something we would expect a modern public official to resign for.
