Universal City: Universal Pictures, 1963. Vintage reference photograph of Paula Prentiss, Howard Hawks, and Maria Perschy on the set of the 1964 film. Mimeo snipe on verso.

Based on the short story "The Girl Who Almost Got Away" by Pat Frank, published in the July 1950 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. Roger Willoughby (Rock Hudson), esteemed author and expert on fishing, has never fished, and when outspoken and unshakable PR agent Abigail Page (Prentiss) enters him into a fishing tournament, mayhem (and possibly romance) ensues.

Howard Hawks' homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 40s, particularly his' own 1938 classic "Bringing Up Baby," starring Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant, who he tried, unsuccessfully, to get to reprise their roles.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
