Cary Grant involved himself in many details of the production. For a scene that took place in his character's library, he arrived to work with boxes of items from the library in his own house and placed them about the set. According to Doris Day, this served not only to make the set more attractive but also made him feel more relaxed and at home, giving his performance "that peculiarly natural, suave quality that is the hallmark of his pictures."

When Philip and Cathy are driving up to the hotel in Bermuda:
1. He is driving on the right side of the road (In Bermuda you drive on the left); 2. He is driving a French Citroën DS19 car with the steering wheel on the left (virtually unknown in Bermuda, where they drive small British cars with the steering wheel on the right); and, 3. He is driving himself (Bermuda doesn't have car rental and only residents are allowed to own cars). See more »

This is a movie that I can enjoy watching over and over again, and every time there's something new to notice. It would be a difficult movie to re-make today, morality having changed the way it has, but as a slice of history, it works well. The script is really well-written, with some great one-liners and sharp dialogue, and who can resist Cary Grant? A hot drink, a plate of cookies, and "That Touch of Mink" add up to a very pleasant way to pass an evening.
