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 »
Lies, not lies - alternatives. Sometimes the truth doesn't quite fit.

Walter Matthau was great as an aging man who lives to hang out in Central Park and tell outrageous lies. He strikes up a relationship with a man whom he drives nuts with his outlandish yarns. Matthau tries a con on several people trying to help them and himself out, but they all backfire. This film had a story that had me riveted to my chair. The entire production was filmed in Central Park, the scenery was beautiful, with many shots of the surrounding buildings. Wonderful movie - 5 stars.
