This is the only big-screen movie I have seen in which the Lucille Ballof "I Love Lucy" was clearly apparent. The movie was released only afew years before the TV series started.

I've always thought William Holden was an underrated comic actor and athis most charming in some of his comedies (Sabrina, Born Yesterday,Moon is Blue). Since he didn't make a lot of comedies, I was lookingforward to this one with Lucille Ball. But it's not Holden's film. It'sLucy's film, with Holde...
