    I saw this movie for the first time on the big screen in Austin at our historic Paramount Theater. I liked it so much I watched it again on Netflix a couple of months later! I read that in the original version (it’s a remake) Hildy was a man, and she was originally written that way for this one, too. Seems strange to think, considering that the marriage storyline is kind of a big deal.

    I actually just watched the Wilder one not long ago (I haven’t seen the 1931 version, which is also two men), and liked it a lot more than I expected. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are just so good together, and it plays very well. If you can manage not to compare it to His Girl Friday (wait awhile before you watch it, Nathan), it’s pretty solid.
