Near the end of the movie Shirley MacLaine and Bob Cummings are on a couch which rises high into the air. In a medium shot there is a white lampshade in the background that is below his shoulder. In a following medium shot the bottom of the shade is bout 8 inches above his shoulder. In the next long shot the top of the shade is at least a foot below the bottom of the couch, a difference of about 4 feet between shots. 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.
