Trivia

The film was adapted from a French film Pardon Mon Affaire (1976). Gene Wilder had previously adapted an Italian film, "The White Sheik" [The White Sheik (1952)], as The World's Greatest Lover (1977), around seven years earlier. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, Theodore Pierce is shown on a ledge with his back up against the building. The ledge is reasonably wide, and his feet are clearly at least a couple of feet from the edge. When the camera goes in for a closeup, however, his feet are right at the edge, implying a much narrower ledge. In addition to the above, in the long shot, he is standing in front of the window . . . the seagull lands . . . and cut to the closeup, he is now on the ledge between two windows. There was not enough "real time" for him to move sideways on the ledge. See more »

Quotes

Great stuff
23 August 2003 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

I literally laughed till i cried at this super piece of work. I am a big fan of Gene Wilder, he seems to have a natural ability to make me laugh, so i knew i was in for a good laugh here. I must have seen The Woman in Red about 12 times now over the years and it just keeps getting better. What a shame Gene Wilder doesn't make movies any more, i feel there is no good talent around for comedy these days. It seems to be just young guys who are good looking so people would like them whatever they do. Gene Wilder on the other hand is a comedy legend, not just an actor but a director and writer, he is a man of many talents and i really miss him. Also worth noting about The Woman in Red is the soundtrack by Stevie Wonder, it's so 80's and it just brings me back to those days again. Gene Wilder plays a man seeking adventure in his life and becomes obsessed with the woman in red played by Kelly LeBrock. That's your basic storyline, simple and straight to the point so the laughs begin immediately as Teddy (Wilder) pursues Charlotte (LeBrock) and gets into all kinds of trouble as he chases after the woman in red. Hilarious.
