Battle of the sexes comedy about a free-wheeling bachelor who decides to save his friend's marriage by proving that all mistresses are incapable of fidelity.

A joke early in the movie is that Muriel Laszlo watches old movies at night, in which all the actors are dead. The first time Muriel and Carol are together unpacking Carol's things, Muriel says she had been watching an old Kay Francis and George Brent film. Ironically, both actors were probably alive during the production of this film. Kay Francis died in 1968, the year this film was released, but George lived until 1978. Sadly, in the era "Save A Marriage" was made, old movies and their stars were not held in high esteem, and George and Kay, long forgotten, may have simply been assumed to be dead. See more »

This is a very well written movie. I missed the very beginning. I wasn't prepared for the articulate war of the sexes theme. Some people might consider it too talky. At times it sounded like a George Bernard Shaw play. Sometimes it seemed that Dino was sleepwalking and this much wordplay was a little too much for him. Perhaps the interesting dimensions owe something to the participation of Wallach his wife. Movies from this period project a particular mise en scene of imperial America at its zenith of hubris and naivitee. The characters Martin and Wallach play are unselfconsciously "upper class" and enjoy the life of extreme privilege without any consideration if they deserve their good fortune. The US was up to its neck in Vietnam at the time and modern consumer society was being born. A nice old chestnut from a time we can remember fondly but not aspire to emulate.
