Loved the movies Doris did with James Garner. He is a wonderful man - met him at the Indianapolis Speedway many years ago. I just learned in the past couple of days from someone very close to him that Mr Garner is not well, so I ask all of you to please pray for him.

For me - the scene where Doris nervously botches up her first commercial - with assistance from a pesty and annoying director (Bernie Kopell) who badgers her quite a bit - has me in entirely in stitches ! Her stammering and 'hems and haws' - the hesitancy and the way in which she brings it across is totally realistic. That is the way that most novices before the TV cameras or stage would react. Yet in was her natural demeanor that literally 'saves the day' and Beverly Boyer becomes such a popular spokesperson for the soap.
I also like the German maid --- I get plenty of laughs with her as well as Maid # 1 - Zasu Pitts. All in all - a sunny and funny movie.
Sure wish we could find a film like that today !!!!!!!

The little girl who played Doris' daughter in this movie also appeared in the SOUND OF MUSIC.

The whole movie is full of natural comedy.But to act this way like Doris did,really puts down a perfect picture of how you can start a commercial...

Hi Mrs Adams

Welcome to the forum - your post made me think about the film's title, "The Thrill of it All" - what does it mean? We've gotten used to it but it doesn't describe the film in any way, does it? :?

It is a fun film though!

The thrill of it - all - career; home life; marriage etc- which of course it was not!

Filmed on the Universal Pictures backlot, the house used for Doris & James Garner's home in The Thrill Of It All is on what ABC-TV's Desperate Housewives calls Wisteria Lane. On the series, it's Tom & Lynette Scavo's house. In the movie, the front door is on the driveway side and the driveway goes through to the backyard (major movie moment with that driveway going to the back). On DH, there's a garage door there.

On "The Official James Garner Fan Page" on Facebook, this film was posted as a "small diversion" b/c of the Oklahoma Tornado. It appropriate considering that James is from Norman, which is just south of Moore, OK where the Tornado hit. Anyways, if you need a break from that news, I hope this helps. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/m3CdIhsv5Fo

I saw The Thrill of It All twice in the last month on TCM. It is such a pleasure to watch. The chemistry between Doris and Jim Garner is exceptionally good. Doris shines with the children.

Arline Francis and Edward Andrews set the hilarious wheels in motion with their pregnantcy news from the very beginning to the jammed traffic scenes near the end. The chauffer doesn't say much but is hysterical.

The film is well named because it is a thrill for all to watch again and and again. It is one of Doris' best performances.

A hilarious script, great chemistry between Doris and James Garner, the kids and supporting cast were terrific ... I can't say enough ... the film works on every level. Doris looks glorious in this one, her clothes are exceptional, and she is just too funny! It starts off with bouncy Arlene Francis and just bounces right along from start to finish. Never a dull moment! LOVE IT!
I JUST ADORE THE FILM,,,,DORIS IS FANTASTIC LOVE HER
