Sophia Loren with Harry Guardino – Houseboat

Sophia Loren with Harry Guardino – Houseboat

Houseboat is a 1958 Technicolor romantic comedy film starring Cary Grant, Sophia Loren, Martha Hyer, Paul Petersen, Charles Herbert, and Mimi Gibson. The movie was directed by Melville Shavelson, who also directed the original version of Yours, Mine and Ours (1968). The love theme “Almost In Your Arms”, and “Bing! Bang! Bong!”, sung by Loren, were written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.

Grant’s wife Betsy Drake wrote the original script, and Grant originally intended that she would star with him. After he began an affair with Loren while filming The Pride and the Passion (1957), Grant arranged for Loren to take Drake’s place with a rewritten script for which Drake did not receive credit. The affair ended in bitterness before The Pride and the Passion‍ ’​s filming ended, causing problems on the Houseboat set. Grant hoped to resume the relationship, but Loren agreed to marry Carlo Ponti instead.
