    Before there was Sterling/Cooper there was Worldwide Wicket, and who better to tie these two 60s corporate/sexist worlds together than Robert Morse who played Bert Cooper on "Madmen," a character that could have been J. Pierpont Finch forty years on, sporting more poundage and a beard, but whose lust for power hidden beneath an impish manner is still very much intact. Morse's zesty performance is the best thing about this film, but there are other pleasures as well, such as Frank Loesser's songs, many of which (i.e. "Company Way," "It's Been A Long Day," and "I Believe In You") have become Kennedy era standards, and Bob Fosse's staging of song/dance numbers such as "A Secretary Is Not A Toy," and "Brotherhood Of Man." Less good is Michele Lee's boring rendition of Rosemary (it's not helped by the screenplay's giving her no funny lines) and David Swift's static direction of the non musical parts. (Guy should be called David Slow). Solid B.

    Love love love this '67 movie with its FAB sixties color schemes! Love the dry, droll wit peppered throughout. IMhumbleO, Rudy Vallee had two perfect parts: in this film, as Biggley, and in I Remember Mama as the dignified physician challenged by the family patriarch. Steven's close-up of him in 'Mama' is a gem. Back to this movie, it's fun, it's great, I excuse the sexism, it's a time capsule, and I love escaping into this film. There!

  • charming 1967 business world farce

    started watching this film in the middle and was pulled in by the comedy--had to go to tcm to see what film was playing. the writing and themes stand up to today's cut-throat world--and the sets are classic 60's mod. the musical numbers seem a bit simplistic, but the singing is good. the lead actor made the movie definitely worth watching for musical-comedy lovers. fans of "singin' in the rain" will recognize a certain high-pitched voice.
