I have seen this movie at least 100 times and still cry every time I watch it. Cary Grant and Sophia Loren are both my favorite actors. He was an absolutely dashing man and came across as a perfect gentleman. She was so beautiful and sexy in houseboat!! I cannot imagine any of her leading men not falling in love with her. I did not know that the romance between Cary and her had ended just before this movie. You definitely could not tell and they seemed completely in love! Houseboat had a wonderful storyline and a great cast, including the children with their superb acting. I am 61 years old and still in love with Cary!!!
Do you know something we don't?
