This fanciful comedy stars Shirley MacLaine as Harriet Blossom, the neglected wife of brassiere manufacturer Robert, whose passion in life is music. Harriet’s boredom is solved when she hides Ambrose Tuttle, one of Robert’s workers, in the attic.

Andrew Sarris enjoyed this film and when I first saw it I thought it was appealingly anarchic. Scenes have stayed with me. Shirley MacLaine is at her most ebullient. I don't think she is a great actress but I love her sparkle. She has played too many curmudgeons of late and she brings little depth to them. However, there was no one like MacLaine when she came up in movies like "The Apartment" or "Some Came Running."
