This black comedy opens with Louisa Foster donating a multimillion dollar check to the IRS. The tax department thinks she's crazy and sends her to a psychiatrist. She then discusses her four marriages, in which all of her husbands became incredibly rich and died prematurely because of their drive to be rich. Written by

During the scene at Pinky and Louisa's pool, several bright stage lights are seen reflected in the sunglass lenses of Louisa (while she is seated) and Pinky (after he comes down the stairs). See more »
"What A Way To Go" is a very funny black comedy about a woman who keeps marrying rich men who meet with untimely deaths. So she keeps getting richer but not happier. The husbands are all played (in small parts) by some of Hollywood's biggest names at the time. Paul Newman, Gene Kelly, Robert Mitchum just to name a few. And Shirley MacLaine is at her absolute sexiest in this film. (Check out the movie sequence with Robert Mitchum). A very enjoyable but overlooked film.
