This black comedy opens with Louisa Foster donating a multimillion dollar check to the IRS. The tax department thinks she's crazy and sends her to a psychiatrist. She then discusses her four marriages, in which all of her husbands became incredibly rich and died prematurely because of their drive to be rich.Written by

The set used as Luisa and Pinky Benson's Hollywood mansion was originally used as the home for the characters played by Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin's in the unfinished 1962 Twentieth Century-Fox film "Something's Got To Give", which was modeled on director George Cukor's private Hollywood home.

During the scene at Pinky and Louisa's pool, several bright stage lights are seen reflected in the sunglass lenses of Louisa (while she is seated) and Pinky (after he comes down the stairs). See more »
Too bad this movie isn't out on video because it's definitely worth seeing!
I'm really surprised that this movie isn't out on print. It's terrific and star studded. Dick Van Dyke, Dean Martin, Robert Cummings, Shirley MacLaine, Gene Kelly, and Paul Newman. GREAT CAST and GREAT STORYLINE. Shirley MacLaine is Louisa May Foster...Poor girl who just wants to stay poor but keeps marrying poor men who become rich men who ignore her and then meet their doom in some odd or untimely way. I really loved this movie. Try to see it sometime. It's worth it! I LOVED IT! Shirley is absolutely beautiful. This movie is funny because of what she keeps comparing her life with each one. "Our life together was like a big Hollywood movie...About love and what will she wear next." The dresses were gorgeous and the wigs were fabulous! WORTH WHILE! A 10!
