Overview

Cary Grant made his last film appearance before retiring from the screen in this agreeable piece of fluff based on the 1943 comedy The More the Merrier, which dealt with the romantic complications inherent in the housing shortage in Washington D.C. during World War II. In Walk, Don't Run, the story is updated to a housing shortage in Tokyo during the Olympic Games of 1966. British industrialist Sir William Rutland (Cary Grant) arrives in Tokyo two days before the start of the games and cannot find any suitable accommodations. As a result, he answers an ad for an "apartment to share" and convinces the occupant, Christine Easton (Samantha Eggar), to rent a room to him. The next day he meets the handsome Steve Davis (Jim Hutton), a member of the United States Olympic walking team. Steve also needs a room and convinces Christine to take him on as a second tenant. After meeting Christine's pompous fiancé, Julius D. Haversack (John Standing), Rutland begins to ply his matchmaking skills in an effort to get Christine and Steve to fall in love with each other.

    Walk, Don't Run. Grant's Goodbye

    Whilst it may not be Cary Grant's utter best film (that title would have to go to films such as "The Philadelphia Story"), "Walk Don't Run" is still a movie worth mentioning. It is Grant's final movie and as a goodbye to the cinema screen, his character (Sir William Rutland) does not get the girl in this one.
    Instead, he plays matchmaker to the two other characters, Conservative Englishwoman, Christine (played by Samantha Eggar) and the American Architect-athlete, Steve (played by Jim Hutton, Timothy Hutton's father).
    The story follows Rutland, an older businessman who has come to Tokyo for the Olympics three days early. Naturally, all hotels are packed and his reservation isn't free for another three days. That's the starting point that leads him to share Christine's apartment, and then later Rutland lets half of his half to Steve.without the landlady's permission; which of course leads to hilarity and a few arguments.
    All three of the main characters are charming in their own right. Grant is his own wonderful self as always and can bring laugher with the simplest facial expressions. Jim Hutton brings to mind a younger (and somewhat more attractive) Jimmie Stewart, playing Steve to a simple kind of all-American no-nonsense hero, who is a secret romantic at heart. While Samantha Eggar is beautiful edition, with her own tight-lipped English appeal. The sexual tension between Christine and Steve has its funny moments as well as some hot "oh my goodness there's no way this was made in the sixties" moments.
    Overall, it's a fun movie. Not exactly a chick flick, and not exactly a classic. It holds its own and contains some great dialog, wonderful chemistry between the leading stars and a cleverly put together love story. And if you're a fan of Carey Grant movies, than it's definitely a must see!
