Romance on the High Seas is a fun little romantic comedy filled with mistaken identities and amusing day players doing shtick for our amusement, and Doris Day finding in-story reasons to sing while impersonating a society dame on a cruise so said dame can catch her husband in an affair while he thinks she's away (Doris must fall for the private investigator trying to prove the DAME is a cheater). Directed by the genre-proof Michael Curtiz, it bounces along pleasantly, with strong staging throughout and charming musical interludes. What's most surprising is that this is Doris Day's first film. She's so charming and confident, so sparklingly funny, and sexier by far than in Pillow Talk, the movie where they tried to update her screen persona by "sexifying" her. As the movie says, it's magic.
