This one shouldn't work, but it does--if you can get past all the dated battle-of-the-sexes shenanigans, that is.
Cary Grant's deadpan timing and enduring matinee idol looks serve him well as a business tycoon with love, but not marriage, on his mind; and Miss Day, though too old by nearly a decade to be the naïve ingenue she plays here, somehow pulls it off. Certain actresses could do that, or maybe it was the era--Doris Day reminds me of the winsome Audrey Hepburn in her uncanny ability to strike warm and lovely sparks with virtually any leading man.
Rounding out the cast is Gig Young as Grant's put-upon assistant, and Audrey Meadows as Day's wisecracking roommate and best friend.

GOOD 1962 Doris and Cary film - definitely a period piece. This flavor of romantic dueling between a couple does have more than a bit of old time staleness - still it was enjoyable to watch - glad I did.

Fun to see Audrey Meadows, again, too...

Packed with more risqué innuendo than the usual Doris Day confection but with all the erotic tension of a Sunday afternoon bingo game at the nursing home, Delbert Mann’s frothy little comedy of sexual manners is so outdated that time has rendered it’s blatant sexism somehow quaint as Doris tries to prove she’s a worldly woman while keeping her knees firmly together. “Oh, if only he would just hit me!” she laments after derailing Grant’s lavish attempt to get between her legs and he accepts his defeat like a gentleman causing her no end of guilt and embarrassment. Can you just guess how it’s all going to end? The candy-coloured postcard views of New York and Bermuda are dreamy and an amiable supporting cast manage to make Doris’ dilemma seem slightly less ridiculous—notably Audrey Meadows who gets all the best lines as her delightfully cynical roommate; Gig Young as Grant’s neurotic financial advisor and voice of conscience; and John Astin as the sleazy welfare officer who’d love to seize the Day himself. Surprise cameos from New York Yankee legends Micky Mantle, Roger Maris, and Yogi Berra too!

Basic story, but the acting hasn't much logic.

America's most eligible and richest bachelor makes the acquaintance of a naive country girl transplant to New York City by splashing mud all over the young lady. He sends his brilliant young financial advisor over to the automat, where her roommate is employed, to apologize unsuccessfully until the tycoon appears in person and charms the unemployed young lady into a date. Later, while on a trip in Bermuda she gets looped and breaks out in a rash. After a madcap romance they get married and when they return to Bermuda for their honeymoon, the groom has an attack of nerves and comes down with the blotches.
