Norman Jewison directs one of Hollywood's most famous screen teams, Doris Day and Rock Hudson as a perky housewife and her hypochondriac husband in this, their third and final film together. Hudson is hilarious as an obsessed hypochondriac who mistakenly overhears his doctor discussing the impending death of a patient. Believing the poor victim is himself, Hudson elicits the help of his friend and neighbour, Tony Randall, to find a new husband for his soon-to-be-widowed wife. Randall, unfortunately, isn't much help as he deals with his upcoming loss by swigging martinis. Alarmed by her husband's increasingly strange behaviour, Day becomes even more frustrated when an old paramour (Clint Walker) shows up at their country club and Hudson encourages his attentions towards her!
Funniest Doris Day film!

I loved Doris Day when I was younger, but her films seem very dated now. However I've always remembered this one being funny and I wasn't disappointed...several laugh out loud moments and the supporting characters excellent I.e. Tony Randall and the funeral director and doctor.
