Trying to reconcile
8 June 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In one of his few flings at light comedy Zachary Scott plays the macho husband of Alexis Smith and he believes woman's place is in the home. No wife of mine will earn any of the money while I'm master of the house. Make sure that dinner is on the table when I get home from the breadwinning.

But later on when he hires Veda Ann Borg at his job and Smith gets that mixed up which earns Scott a sock on the jaw from Douglas Kennedy her husband. After that poor Scott spends the film trying to reconcile.

Zachary Scott displays a flair for comedy that was not often seen. His typical role was set in his debut film where he's the serpentine and devious man Dimitrios Macropoulos in The Mask Of Dimitrios. Unfortunately One Last Fling was definitely one last fling at comedy for Zachary Scott and most lightweight material.

But Veda Ann Borg is here and she's worth watching in anything.
