Move Over Darling A remake of My Favourite Wife, originally begin filming with Marilyn Monroe as Something’s For To Give. After having not found his wife, Ellen, 7 years after a plane crash, lawyer, Nick Arden has Ellen declared legally dead; and also marries Bianca Steele. But Ellen is alive.
Doris Day at her zaniest!
Don Knotts makes a funny cameo as a randy shoe salesman and Edgar Buchanan (Petticoat Junction) is funny as a surly Court Judge. Thelma Ritter is always funny and she is up to par here. This movie was apparently re-worked for Doris Day after the death of Marilyn Monroe who was essentially filming the same movie when she died. Even the sets were basically the same. I guess 20th Century Fox needed the money after the Liz Taylor fiasco “Cleopatra” almost put them in bankruptcy. Overall, a very cute, sexy (for the era) funny movie. They don’t make cute movies like this anymore. Too bad.
Doris Day lovers will love this one!
