It seems only fair to point out that the 1957 film was the work of hands other than those creating the musical, and that evem the much-vaunted score was changed to appease the censorship gods. "Zip" and "Bewitched..." have lost all their bite in this incarnation. As for what remains of O'Hara's script? Better to hold a wake than to watch the film.
