Trivia

In one scene, Tom Milford (Bobby Darin) explains to Harvey Granson (Donald O'Connor) that the party scheduled for that night will celebrate the unveiling of the Statue of Liberty which took place 78 years ago that day. So the date of the party is 28 October 1964 since the unveiling of the Statue took place on 28 October 1886. See more »

Sandra Dee and Bobb D
9 August 2017 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

"More locations than the A&P"... does anyone else remember the A&P chain of supermarkets?? They actually say that line in the film.... A & P is all gone now, but they have an interesting story at wikipedia. Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin were married in "real life", and were known for their wholesome, family friendly films.... they did make three of them in the 1960s. Darin died quite young, at 37, after heart surgery...he was already divorced twice by that time. Dee and Darin made these films about mistaken identity and misunderstandings, like Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Astute viewers will recognize Nita Talbot, who was Marya on Hogans Heroes! The silly mix-up in "Feeling" is that Joan is actually Tom's maid, but since they have never met, Joan (Dee) pretends to own his apartment, which wouldn't be a big deal, except that she tells this to Tom when she meets him, and he KNOWS it's not hers. Supporting roles by Larry Storch ( F Troop) and Leo Carroll (North by Northwest). Like every episode of Three's Company, when the deception is discovered, rather than talk it out and have a good laugh, they continue on and dig the hole deeper and deeper. Donald O'Connor is in here for comedy. Some double entendres about an unmarried mother when Joan takes some things to the pawn broker... It's all mostly plain, simple fun. As long as you buy in, its all harmless and done. Pretty okay.
