All of Me (1984) Poster

(1984)

Trivia

Some movie posters for the film featured a long text preamble that read: "They say that behind every great man there's a woman. But in this case it's ridiculous. When rich, eccentric Edwina Cutwater died, a crazy guru tried to transport her soul into the body of a beautiful young woman. But the guru goofed. And Edwina's soul has accidentally taken over the entire right side of her lawyer, Roger Cobb. He still controls what's left. Now, Edwina and Roger are living together in the same body. He's losing his job. He's losing his girlfriend. And he just can't seem to get her out of his system. No matter how hard he tries".

In an interview, Steve Martin once said of this movie: "This man is not an idiot. He is a contemporary person with some brains . . . he's not naive or a victim of circumstances. He's an intelligent man who happens to get caught in a disaster. That's a big difference between this role and any other part I've played . . . For the first time I'm in a story with a beginning, middle, and end. It's old-fashioned and solid . . . This movie was like going to school. I learned a lot about structure and character".
