In the scene where Nat Moyer (Walter Matthau) says to Midge Carter (Ossie Davis), "My God, you're black!" He stands up and puts on some black glasses. When the two start laughing, Nat takes his glasses off and sits back down. When the camera is then on Carter, it shows the back of Nat's head and the glasses are back on his face. See more »
I was one person for the first eighty years. Why not a hundred for the next five?

Sensitive, poetic, funny, amusing. Excellent actuation from Walter Matthau. Ossie Davis is good too.
A sensitive approach to the "getting old" problem on the big cities. The main character is a modern version of Dom Quixote, who tries to keep his ideas and principles alive assuming to be imaginary people which had more interesting histories than he had on his own life.
The movie is beautiful and amusing. Walter Matthau is splendid.
