Trivia

This American film seems to have been released in Europe far earlier than in the US. In Great Britain, it was released in the Spring of 1968, and was shown as the lower half of a double-bill with "Reflections In A Golden Eye". However, it was savagely cut to a length of only 73 minutes. See more »

witty and good looking
20 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This had some really great dialogue throughout, making it an even more pleasurable experience besides the intriguing offbeat plot and great locations. The photography is extremely colorful and looked great with original 35mm Panavision widescreen prints in IB Technicolor. I don't think distributor WB did a very good job of selling this one, which was sadly the case with many of their films when attached to 7 Arts. Another film that should be on tape and (one can only hope) DVD.
