Richard Quine directs George Axelrod's acerbic script (adapted from Julien Duvivier's La Fte Henriette) in this romantic comedy that reunites William Holden and Audrey Hepburn for the first time since 1954's Sabrina. Holden plays Richard Benson, a Hollywood screenwriter being pressured by movie producer Alexander Meyerheimer (Nol Coward) to finish his script entitled "The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower." Meyerheimer gives Richard a two-day ultimatum to complete his work, unaware that Richard has yet to even start on the script. In an effort to get moving on his project, Richard hires a live-in secretary, Gabrielle Simpson (Audrey Hepburn), to help him. Soon enough, the two fall in love and spend the time enacting various scenes from the unwritten screenplay as the time slips away and Richard's deadline looms. ~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide

Fun comedy laughs at itself by hneline1 March 2, 2002 - 2:35 PM PST

This is a fun comedy that spoofs the movie industry. Watch for lots of cameos and inside jokes. My favorite was William Holden telling Audrey Hepburn that "My Fair Lady" was basically a remake of Frankenstein. Tony Curtis is great as the "2nd policeman" who can't act. The ending is too contrived but it's still very fun to watch because Audrey is always exquisite.
