Lewis and Clark were famous comedians during the vaudeville era. Off-stage, though, they couldn't stand each other, and haven't spoken in over twenty years. Ben, Willy Clark's nephew, is the producer of a variety show that wants to feature a reunion of the classic duo. How will Ben convince the crotchety old comedians to put aside their differences before the big show?Written by
George Burns usually wore a hairpiece when he worked. The first scene we see of him in the film is one of few scenes he ever shot without it. See more »
Walter Matthau takes a teabag from his cup and places it into the cup of George Burns. A moment later Burns reaches for the teabag to remove it but the string has changed direction and is hanging down from the other side of the cup. See more »
How do you do, Mr. Lewis. I'm Ben Clark, Willy's nephew.
Oh?... oh! Willy's nephew Ben. Sure, hello. How are you?
Good, good. You're Willy's nephew Ben. How are you?
Fine, sir, very good. It was nice of you to see me.
Really? When was that?
[after a pause]
Heh, heh, it was nice of you to see me today.
Certainly. Today is fine. As a matter of fact, I was expecting you today.

Superb version of the early 1970's comedy by Neil Simon about two aging comics, who hate each other, who try to patch up their relationship for a comedy tribute. Matthau is right on, but it's Burns who steals scene after scene. Just watching all that talent makes the picture! Richard Benjamin is also very good as Matthau's agent and nephew. Keep an eye out for F. Murray Abraham and Howard Hessemen.
