"Screenwriter Richard Benson (William Holden) has three days to finish his movie. But to meet his deadline, he needs the help and imagination of his captivating secretary Gabrielle Simpson (Audrey Hepburn). Together, they write and revise a romance/mystery as they envision themselves in the lead roles. The suspense builds as each page pulls the writing team and their alter egos, closer and closer. Will love imitate art before the final scene fades to black? Cameo appearances by Hollywood legends Marlene Dietrich, Mel Ferrer and Tony Curtis add to the charm of this delightful romantic comedy"--Container.

Cute movie that was made by Hollywood for Hollywood. Probably this love story happened more than once, no doubt the scriptwriter is based on several real life writers, and the insider jokes - Hollywood making fun of Hollywood- are dated but still funny (the most obvious is the disdain for method acting)! It really isn't a great script, but Hepburn and Holden do such a great job making it work! Worth watching for film industry folk and Hepburn fans!

bit of a screwball comedy. loved the references to some Hepburn's earlier roles but this is not the best of her movies.

Fun fact: Audrey and Holden were lovers way back when, but when she found he had had a vasectomy, she left him because she wanted to have children so badly.

Loved it, lots of fun, she is so innocent looking, Holden at his height in popularity, lots of movement but sometimes hard to keep up with. Funny. The fight scene is hilarious.The ending is rediculous but somehow great. Glad I own it I can watch it whenever I want.
