Paula Prentiss: Truly Wonderful
- David Atkins
George Roy Hill directs a talented team of pro's in this delightful movie. Peter Sellars, Angela Lansbury, Phyllis Thaxter star with the incomparable Paula Prentiss, that gorgeous Texan on loan from MGM steals the picture. MGM had Paula under contract and what a ride she had in those great MGM comedies she made with Jim Hutton! In her career Paula Prentiss would star with John Wayne, Lana Turner, Bob Hope, Patricia Neal, Rock Hudson, Steve McQueen, Warren Beatty. Delightful star. I wish TCM would have' a summer under the star saluting Paula with: Horizontal Lieutenant, World of Henry Orient, What's New Pussycat, Parallax View, Stepford Wives, Bachelor in Paradise, and the movie that made her a star Where The Boys Are!
The Girls Steal the Show!
This movie is alot of fun to watch, and is finally getting the recognition it deserves, oddly inappropriate title aside. The girls steal the show, and Peter Sellers knows it. He flows from the true genius and power and complexity of Dr Strangelove to playing what amounts to a bit part behind the young girls living their lives, and allow them and Paula Prentiss and Tom Bosley to play their parts as well. Silly stuff with a few real messages worth watching for. We do not make em like this anymore. I must confess I agree with Bob's impression of this movie- I fell madly in love with these girls and their pure spirit...
The Two Young Female Leads Steal This Movie
- Bob Stutsman
Forget the great Pete Sellers and Angela Lansbury. It is the two young ladies who become captivated by the awful Mr. Orient that make this a great entertainment. The two young actresses are priceless and perfect as the bright, imaginative, and bedeviling (to Mr. Orient) adolescents. The dialogue and all scenes with these two are very true to and evocative of the hormonal early teenage years. I fell in love with them when I first saw them (as I was about their own onscreen age), and I am sure all viewers of this movie will also. I don't know what became of them, but they are brilliant and could hold their own with the very distinguished adult cast. A must see for adolescents of all ages. The parody of the avant garde modern music piece at Mr. Orient's concert is priceless. Girls, wherever you are, I love you!
