Did You Know?

The play was loosely inspired from a famous exchange between dancer Isadora Duncan and playwright George Bernard Shaw. Duncan suggested the two should produce a child because "with your mind and my body, think what a person it would be."See more »

Just OK, 4 May 2001
Author: artzau from Sacramento, CA

Take three competent actors, James Mason, lovely Susan Hayward and Julie Newmar, and an idiot script with a lame premise and what do you get? Right. A mediocre movie. But, it's OK. Mason plays a cultural anthropologist who Newmar wants to share genes with. However, Mason's wife, Hayward, is having none of it. It goes down from there. Lamewitted writing, silly situations but always good acting and hey, Newmar was ALWAYS worth the price of a ticket. Hayward too is great but you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear, the saying goes and a poor script does not a great movie make.
