It stars SteveMartin and Rachel Ward . . . and Ava Gardner, and Ingrid Bergman, and Fred [=MacMurray=], and so forth. And, when you think about it, was directed by Carl Reiner ... and Robert Siodmak, and Creator/AlfredHitchcock, and Creator/BillyWilder, and so forth. The film had the luck of hiring veteran costumer Edith Head, who also did the costumes from most of the original films used. She passed shortly after, and the film is affectionately dedicated to her memory and to the people who worked on the films of the 40s and 50s. As a coincidence, it was also the last feature film of composer Music/MiklosRozsa, who partly wrote music for scenes he had already scored 40 years before...

Added DiffLines:
* GrandFinale: The film ended up coincidentally but awesomely being one for legendary costume designer Edith Head. It was the final film she worked on, and besides her original creations also features a lot of her earlier work in the clips.

* InMemoriam: A quite touching one to Edith Head. This was the final film that the legendary costume designer (and winner of the most Oscars in history) worked on, and fittingly her work is also featured in many of the clips.
