70s eurocomedy not without charm
28 March 2016 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

An old fashioned screwball comedy which, as we all know, requires a good partnership of actors: a female dominating the relationship with the male central character's masculinity challenged. Roger Moore delivers the light comedy and suave touch as the rakish arms trader making overtures towards Susannah York's feisty, pacifist, feminist journalist. These exhanges are entertaining and there are some funny moments provided by Lee J. Cobb and Shelley Winters who are another good pairing. Productions standards are good with some luscious set design. Alas, the pacing of action is off, the comedy becomes a little protracted by the third act, and it has a stub of a story ending. But, if you are especially fond of Roger Moore as a light comedy actor then it is worth a viewing. Otherwise, it is unremarkable.
