Familiar Plot Well Done
5 May 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Notice that slimy philanderer Ben Nelson (Alda) heads up a plastics firm. I doubt plastics was accidental since he molds himself to each situation. Watch him finagle his way around kittenish paramour Sharon Trotter (Provine) and then his unsuspecting wife (Wray). At first we're unsure of his true feelings as he strings Sharon along with seemingly sincere promises of getting free of his wife. However, Sharon's very proper mom (Nolan) disapproves, suspecting Ben's true motives. So what will she do since Sharon appears sincerely in love.

It's a talky entry, but holds interest largely because of the well-acted characters. Also, Hitch's letter-reading prologue remains drolly hilarious. There is a moral to the story, however— whatever you do, don't mess with King Kong's girl !
