USA 1958
Dir Melville Shavelson
With Cary Grant, Sophia Loren, Martha Hyer, Harry Guardino
Certificate U

A widower with three children resists the offer of help from his wealthy in-laws and tries to raise them on his own – with some help from a sophisticated Italian nanny (Loren) who, like him, has no domestic skills. The original script was written by Grant’s wife Betsy Drake, who was also due to star, but their relationship broke down as he was having an affair with Loren, and the script was drastically re-written.

The screening on Sun 15 Sep is a family screening.
