This was the first feature film Vincente Minnelli had made away from M-G-M in his entire career. See more »
George begins to tell her his idea about the operation and tells her to sit down. Several things can be seen from the side shot on the desk in front of her as she sits. First, four piles of cards are face up with the rest of the deck face down in a single pile to the left of them. Her purse and the ashtray are above them closer to the far edge of the desk. Then when they switch to a front shot of her, things have changed. The denomination of face-up cards are different and the rest of the deck face down is now in two piles instead of one. Also, her purse and ashtray are now in line with the piles of cards, and not above them as before. See more »
Some will smile, Some will Laugh this movie is for Everyone!!
Not every movie made has to have a message. Some are made just to entertain us. John Wayne proved that and "Goodbye Charlie" has taken it to a new height.
Debbie Reynolds and Tony Curtis really had that special chemistry that's always needed in a good comedy and there timing was perfect. Now consider this movie was made around the time when the first civil rights act was passed and it was still believed that "it's a man's world." Debbie Reynolds plays the part of Charlie who was the classic womanizer. He is shot and comes back as a woman (Debbie). He still thinks he's Charlie -- Big Problem especially in 1964.
I rate this movie 5 stars considering the time it was made, the skill of the players and a theme song I just fell in love with. If you need to have a fun afternoon get "Goodbye Charlie"!
