Henry J. Tyroone leaves Texas where his oil wells are drying up and arrives in New York with a lot of oil money to play with in the stock market. He meets stock analyst Molly Thatcher, who he falls in love with. She tries to ignore the attention he lavishes on her, but, in the end, she falls for his charm. Written by
Henry Tyroone (James Garner) is a Texas oilman with a few too many dry wells. He needs to go up north to raise money or else he's going broke. There isn't a complicated deal that he couldn't make or a scheme that he couldn't hustle. In NYC, Bullard Bear (Jim Backus) needs to cut one job and he sets his sights on the only woman stock analyst Molly Thatcher (Lee Remick). He gives her a really bad stock to sell. Nobody takes the women seriously. Tyroone comes in to do a deal and Bear pushes Molly out to sell the bad stock.
It's a bland rom-com. Lee Remick is really pretty but she doesn't have a comedic side. James Garner is a cad. They have limited chemistry. At least, he's playing his character with a smile and a giddy-up. He's the best thing in this movie. Everybody is lying, scheming and selling junk. The money grubbing isn't all that fun or that likable. Director Arthur Hiller has trouble bringing joy into this movie. There is nothing memorable or hilarious. The story throws around a lot of business deals but half of them don't make sense. I guess the writer hopes they go by so fast that the audience won't notice. More than anything, this is just bland.
