Description
From legendary Hollywood director Howard Hawks, Man's Favorite Sport? features Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss in a hilarious fish-out-of-water tale The Film Daily applauded as simply "delightful".

Roger Willoughby (Hudson) is happily employed as one of the world's great angling experts. Unfortunately, even his own boss doesn't know that Roger has never been fishing in his life. So when press agent Abigail Page (Prentiss) arranges for Roger to participate in her resort's upcoming fishing tournament, he's thrown into a panic. At the resort, he and Abby commence a crash course to turn him into a genuine outdoorsman-only to have their plan riotously upset by a surprise visit from Roger's fiancée.

With a sparkling score by composer Henry Mancini, Man's Favorite Sport? is a comedy classic you'll fall for hook, line and sinker!

      Comments about this product:

      This is a 1963 sexy comedy starring Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss.

      Rock delivers another fun comedy of the 1960's. If it seems dated, it is because the morality was better! It is just clean fun, with peekaboo's for the male viewers. There is nothing dirty going on, except in the minds of others.

      The only thing found about his boss's equipment, the inflatable waders gets a flat rejection! Rock can't even assemble the tent, so that is a maybe another rejection for the inexperienced user. Anyhow, Paula gets him to move into his cabin.

      Rock wrote a book about fishing, but he doesn't seem to remember what he wrote or taught inside the store. So, Paula tries to teach him.

      Everything is comedy, even eating a salad. You have got to watch the antics, it is a laugh per minute. This is plain fun. I hope you enjoy the silliness as much as I did. I watch this when I need to lift my spirits.

            I like this movie because it shows how an expert in a field has no hands on experience and has to learn the ropes by someone with practical knowledge. Just fun and a lot of laughs.

                When I need a good laugh this is one movie that does the trick. Rock Hudson is a fine actor especially in comedies, he is such a natural and really is the person who makes this movie so enjoyable!!
                The plot is a bit naive for todays society, how refreshing.
