(1965) dir Clive Donner w/Peter O’Toole, Peter Sellers, Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress [108 min; 35mm]
This bedroom farce – featuring an early screenplay by Woody Allen – offered O’Toole an opportunity to show off his impressive comedic talents opposite the uproarious Peter Sellers – and a bevy of beautiful women. O’Toole plays an incorrigible womanizer who desperately wants to be faithful to his fiancée and so turns to loopy, lovelorn psychoanalyst Dr. Fassbender (Sellers) for help.
