Mary, Mary Not-At-All-Contrary
1 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hadn't seen this movie for more than thirty years -until today. Thanks to the boards here I was able to find a copy on DVD-R. The acting is excellent, the dialogue brilliant. This really should be available on commercial DVD with a commentary from the surviving cast members -before it's too late.

My only complaint is that the color palate of the film is very muted -all grey, beige, and faun. Very chic for the time, I'm sure, but a bit dull today. Of course that may be partly due to the fact that I have a DVD-R made from another source. (BTW, it's an excellent source -no commercials or cuts.)

As another user already wrote, this is a film for grown ups. The jokes are fast and furious, but they are sophisticated. Only two pratfalls in the film, and nothing sexier than a chaste kiss. It's actually refreshing!

BTW, am I the only one who can't eat dried apricots without saying (if only to myself), "I thought they were ears?"
