What's New Pussycat? (1965) As a sex maniac psychologist, Peter Sellers creates one of the funniest characterizations achieved in the 1960s. Half the cast goes to him to be treated for, what else? Sexual addiction! Peter O'Toole is his primary patient, who earns his reputation as a smooth sophisticated playboy by cheating on the delicious Romy Schneider (taken from us tragically too soon) with: Capuccine, Paula Prentis and Bond-icon Ursula Andress!
Lots of groovy chicks, groovy guys, Pucci dresses, romps in out-of-the-way hotels and the incomparable Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass soundtrack with Tom Jones thrown in for good measure. It's a fine and fitting debut for Woody Allen, who acts as both writer and supporting cast member. With Casino Royale, this is one of the screwballiest comedies of the '60s.
