Storyline

Bolt, a British linguist, develops a universal language, so he's a sudden sensation and receives a Nobel prize. An ambitious diplomat, capitalizing on Bolt's celebrity, arranges for the U.S. to commission a statue for a London square to honor Bolt's achievement. Bolt's Italian wife, a renowned artist, sculpts an 18-foot nude of Bolt. In a pique, because he's neglected her for years to do his work, she gives the statue a spectacular phallus, telling Bolt that he wasn't its model. Thinking he's a cuckold, Bolt goes on a jealous search for a man matching the statue. The diplomat, too, wants changes in the statue to protect his conservative image. Can art and love reconcile?

Classic Niven
13 October 2001 | by (Arlington Texas) – See all my reviews

One of David Niven's best. He notices a particular appendage on the nude statue of himself is not his and sets out to find out whose it is. In the process to make comparisons he makes use of a coin operated photo booth. You get the picture as from under the curtain you see his pants around his ankles. And some girls just passing the booth as the pictures emerge.

I am waiting for the DVD
