MAN'S FAVORITE SPORT? (1964) Directed by Howard Hawks, this is a light-hearted, fun, romantic comedy starring Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss with plenty of laughs.

Based around a Fishing Tournament, Hudson plays Angling Expert "Roger Willoughby" who is asked to participate in the tournament by "Abigail Page" a press agent played by Prentiss.

But there is only one problem; Roger has never been fishing in his life, so it's up to Abigail to teach him.

There is a scene with Roger and Abigail's friend that is taken from Howard Hawks screwball comedy "Bringing Up Baby" when "Susan rips the back of her dress and "David" has to walk behind her to cover her.

It's a great film!
