There are movies I have seen in my life that I wouldn't care to see ever again and can forget them the next day. Then there are movies like 'Perfect Gentlemen' that I have seen only once and have never forgotten. Such was the case with this movie.
Some of the movies from the 1970's could just as well stay there. Then one stands out, like Perfect Gentlemen, that ranks among the best. The cast couldn't have been better, and the plot was outstanding. Lauren Bacall can't make a bad movie. The only negative about this movie is that I can't find it to buy for my own! If you ever find 'Perfect Gentlemen' on television, I heartily recommend an evening of enjoyment! This is a rare gem that should be considered a classic.
