"A Nice Touch" is a middling effort, notable for the casting of a young George Segal as struggling New York actor Larry Duke, who latches on to an older actress, Janice Brandt (Anne Baxter), and gradually makes her fall hard for him. This does not sit well with her drunken husband Ed (Harry Townes), who refuses to grant her a divorce. Ed passes out after confronting her about her affair, followed by the panicked Janice phoning her lover in Hollywood to reminisce about how they first met. It's all rather predictable, having been done to death before, but it is a novelty to see Segal in such an atypical role, much like Bob Newhart's turn in "How to Get Rid of Your Wife."
