Enjoyably silly thriller. The inexplicably Oscar-nominated screenplay which combines dotty dialogue with a potty plot. Doris finds her husband's a killer in reel one, but illogically does little about it for ages. The climax, when she single-handedly brings a plane into San Francisco Airport, is a camp sequence worthy of the Airport series.
Sample line... Sympathetic police officer offers coffee to desperate Doris Day: "You've got quite a problem. Cream and sugar?"
