Worth a blind purchase?
I don't know Ron, I haven't seen this film since I was a kid in a movie theater back in the 1960s. A comedy is so subjective, but this is another Sony Blu-ray MOD which means it's not going to discount much. It will remain north of the $20 price point.

This is a charming film with great performances by Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell; I highly recommend it.
Hopefully the sequel will be released soon.

I'm going to buy it because I remembered liking the film as a kid, but I've stopped recommending comedies as people have different senses of humor. I feel bad when a recommended comedy isn't liked by the person I recommended the film to.

I’ve always thought the comedy aspects were a spiritual twin to The World Of Henry Orient (the drama/emotional aspects are different).

If Ron liked that, he might like this.

I assume this will be the original theatrical aspect ratio, unlike the open matte DVD.

Been a long time but you’ve summed it up well for me. I do remember that the actress who portrayed Haley’s partner in crime was quite good too.

I haven't seen this since I was a kid in the 1960s either, so I don't know how well it's going to hold up now. As an interesting side note, the movie was directed by Ida Lupino and most likely her only comedy from the directorial chair.
