Rating: 4/5 -- Cary Grant's penultimate film is a real charmer.

Rating: B -- Grant cheerfully plays against a lifetime of typecasting in this modestly entertaining romantic comedy… sparks of more than one sort fly between [Grant] and [Caron]. Full Review

Rating: A- -- A fun lightweight adventure, one of the better Cary Grant films, and a darned good "starter" romantic comedy because of all the other distractions and a world that threatens to tear this couple apart before they can even come together. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- Watching Cary Grant shuffle about like an angry, disheveled bum is funny to a degree that it wouldn't be for virtually any other actor who could have conceivably fit the role. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Though Cary Grant manages to get the most he can from the role, it's not enough to cover up the film's emptiness. Full Review

Rating: B- -- One of Cary Grant's last pictures (he retired 2 years later) is one of his most commercially popular vehicles, with an Oscar-winning script by Peter Stone and Leslie Caron (who's half his age) as love interest. Full Review

Product Description:

This World War II comedy stars Cary Grant in an uncharacteristic turn as Walter Eckland. Walter is an unshaven bum who inhabits a deserted island in the South Seas. Completely boozed up, unshaven, and badly dressed, Walter is a watcher for Japanese spy planes. An Australian Navy Commander, Frank Houghton (Trevor Howard) has pressed Walter, who once had his own cruiser at the beginning of the war, to become the sole occupant of a strategic watching station. It is into this world that smart and sexy Catherine Frenau (Leslie Caron) is drawn when Walter, en route in a dinghy to rescue another watcher, stumbles on to the schoolteacher and a flock of seven young girls. The girls have been marooned because their pilot was ordered to leave them to rescue the survivors of an abandoned bomber. Ralph Nelson directs shrewdly and keeps the comedy crisp as these eight survivors try to inhabit the same small island without driving each other crazy. The sharp witted Academy Award winning screenplay by Peter Stone and Frank Tarloff, is based on a story by S.H. Barnett.
