An Arne Sultan-Marvin Worth story has been adapted into what is basically a romantic triangle. Leslie Caron, with a precocious baby boy but no hubby, hopes to connect with her employer, child psychologist Bob Cummings who, in private life, abhors moppets. Caron’s neighbor (Warren Beatty) wants her, although he is careful to conceal his profession – making mail-order nudie films.

Director Arthur Hiller has overcome a basic problem: specifically, that Caron and Beatty are not known as film comics. His fine solution has been to spotlight baby Michael Bradley in the first 30 minutes, when Caron is establishing an easy audience rapport, while Beatty slides into a likeable groove via energetic tumbles and other manifestations of youthful enthusiasm.
