By Andrew Wickliffe on Oct 16, 2017 From The Stop Button

Despite being an adaptation of a stage play and having one main set, Desk Set shouldn?t be stagy. The single main location?and its importance?ought to be able to outweigh the staginess. Desk Set does not, however, succeed in not being stagy. It puts off being stagy for quite a while, but not forever... Read full article

Facts about

Improvised Scene: Sumner is leaving Bunny's apartment, shortly after Mike leaves and Peg arrives, when Bunny and Sumner are recapping the afternoon's events for Peg. Tracy goes "offstage" and returns with his hat pulled down over his ears, his shirt dangling out of his pants, staggering as though drunk and talking crazy. This moment, including the women's hysterical laughter and Hepburn's literally falling out of her chair, is not in the script.
The setting for the film is the Federal Broadcasting Company.
The sound effects created for EMARAC were re-used in numerous movies and TV series, notably Fantastic Voyage.
