I like Richard Widmark, and absolutely love his movies. I have yet to see a "bad" one, or one I did not like. However, the part in this movie was far too lightweight for him. He's much too good of an actor to be in such of a role. He's best in tough-guy parts. He always fits those like a glove. This film, which is about a couple's desire to have children, doesn't do him justice. He was miscast in this part. Doris Day is sweet and lovely, as usual, while Gig Young is totally annoying. His part could have been deleted completely. The story itself is pretty good, but as I said before, it could have been better.
