Shot on location in some of New York's more iconic settings, the city becomes an integral part of the film's atmosphere. Fonda and Taylor watch the ice skaters in Rockefeller Plaza. They go rowing on the lake in Central Park. They get off the bus on 5th Avenue with St Patrick's Cathedral in the background. Of course, they can't get a cab in the rain. It's New York, and it's in beautiful color. It is not Sunday just anywhere, it is Sunday in New York.
The film features a lively jazz influenced musical score by pianist Peter Nero who also plays on screen with his trio in a night club scene. Moreover, as serendipity would have it, one of his albums is presented as a gift from Fonda to her brother, and then later becomes a topic of discussion between Fonda and Taylor as they are out on the lake—not so subtle an example of product placement. Mel Torme who sings the title song over the opening credits is not so lucky.
The DVD in a remastered edition from the Warner Archive Collection runs approximately 105 minutes. The only extra included is the film's trailer, which is of some historical interest in the way it tries to play up the risqué elements of what is really a fairly conventional romantic comedy for advertising purposes.
