This is the third and final movie made by Hollywood’s golden couple Rock
Hudson and Doris Day. This time Rock plays a hypochondriac (George) who
misunderstands his doctor and believes he is a dying man. Wanting to take
care of his wife’s (Judy) future he doesn’t tell her the news. He instead
secretly searches for a suitable replacement husband. George’s suspicious
behaviour leaves his wife suspecting he is hiding an affair. She then leaves
him. On the whole this is a fun film. On saying that unlike the previous
pictures made by Day-Hudson this one starts to feels a little jaded by its
end. The movie features the title theme song which was written by pop
maestros Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
