Two researchers have come to San Francisco to compete for a research grant in Music. One seems a bit distracted, and that was before he meets her.

[resisting hiding on the ledge outside the window]
I can't I'm terrified of heights.
There's a ledge.
I have ledge-o-phobia.
[Eunice bangs on door]
Just until I can get rid of her.
[Eunice bangs again]

A Vibrant comedy that successfully captures the quality of those wonderful 1930's screwball classics. Director Bogdanovich makes the viewing and the homage worthwhile with an energetic performance from Streisand as a crazy coed who manages to disrupt the life styles of a square musicologist and his fiancee (O'Neal and Kahn, lovely in her film debut). There is great support from Mars, Murphy and a young Randy Quaid.
