-- Flat-footed romantic comedy in which a chauffeur's daughter (Audrey Hepburn) is wooed by his employer's playboy son (William Holden) but his staid older brother (miscast Humphrey Bogart) intervenes to save a business deal from souring if they wed by pretending to woo her himself. Directed by Billy Wilder, the situation provides some droll moments but the slow-paced plot is more cynical than amusing and the motivations of the central character are less than credible. Light treatment of marriage and failed suicide attempt. (A-III) (br)
