Trivia

The New York Times critic noted in his review of this film on May 27, 1967, that "? of all the witty demonstrations, one of the most amusing..." in the film was when Jayne Mansfield loses her bra in the home of Terry-Thomas. The sex symbol's two-minute cameo was shot under great personal distress, however. Filmed in mid-December, 1966, at the time, Zoltan Hargitay - Mansfield's youngest son with Mickey Hargitay - was recovering from spinal meningitis at Conjeo Valley Community Hospital, after undergoing brain surgery resulting from his being mauled by a lion in a freak accident at the Jungleland Park in Thousand Oaks, CA, on November 26, 1966. Zoltan spent exactly one month in the hospital, returning home to Jayne's "Pink Palace" on that year's Christmas morning. And though several Mansfield films would be released after her untimely death six months later, the scenes in this one were, as an actress, Jayne Mansfield's final moments before the professional movie cameras.

Underrated classic
2 November 1998 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

A movie from a time when "mature" didn't mean graphic. The plot is right out of the buttoned-down 60's -- Walter Matthau consults with expert adulterer Robert Morse before cheating on his wife (a very sexy Inger Stevens). Robert Morse's lessons are illustrated by hilarious vignettes featuring a Who's Who of comedy stars. The Joey Bishop turn on how to handle being caught in the act -- Deny, Deny, Deny is a classic.
