Long before "Tootsie" and "Mrs. Doubtfire," Wilder gave us this comic, gender-bending masterpiece; which, coming at the very end of the conservative '50s, provided a preview of the more liberated decade to come. Here the director is in pure comedy mode, and pulls off a tricky premise brilliantly. Lemmon and Curtis make an ideal comic duo, Monroe sparkles as the object of their sisterly affections, and Joe E. Brown nearly steals the picture as a dotty millionaire besotted with Lemmon's Daphne. Also look for old-time Warner players Pat O'Brien and George Raft in pivotal roles. A howl, truly.
