Mr. Waterbury's success seems to come from the fact that he is so poorly organized he doesn't know whether he's coming or going and no one else seems to know either.
Finally Stephanie threatens to leave and to get her to stay, the playboy best seller offers to marry her. Wildly unbeleivable story buttressed by fine performances from all in the cast especially Keenan Wynne. Well done comedy with more than a few gaps in logic and believability.
I rate it Three and One Half Stars.
In MY DEAR SECRETARY, playboy novelist Kirk Douglas hires a college girl from his writing class (Laraine Day) to help transcribe his latest book. They become romantic and get married but don't live happily ever after for very long. The strongest element of this screwball comedy is Keenan Wynn as the best friend who practically lives with Douglas, even though he rents a nearby apartment. Wynn has the funniest lines, the best timing and steals every scene he's in. Rudy Vallee is also quite good here.
Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.
(5.8) My Dear Secretary (1948) - Laraine Day/Kirk Douglas/Keenan Wynn/Helen Walker/Rudy Vallee/Alan Mowbray/Irene Ryan/Grady Sutton.

I love these cheesy old romantic comedies. This one was particularly good. Keenan Wynn as the sidekick was the best part of the movie for me. Great for a rainy day.Published 2 months ago by cshell
