The credits are by far the best part of that movie. I love them, so playful and fun. If only the movie lived up to that promise of breezy, sexy fun, but it has only flashes of wit and pleasure.

I saw this movie recently and loved it. But then I'm a major Paula Prentiss fan.

Those credits were recognized at the time as something special. I remember seeing a LIFE magazine layout on the film that focused more on the credits than the story. It did its job and got me interested in seeing the film someday, but I was underwhelmed.
