Goofs

When Paul emerges from the bedroom during the argument with Corie (anticipating her calling him a "stuffed shirt"), Paul is seen unbuttoning his collar. After the view shifts to Corie, and back to Paul, his collar is open as expected. But, as they continue to argue, and Paul starts to return to the bedroom (collar still open), the camera cuts to Corie. She calls him "proper and dignified." When the camera cuts back to Paul for his reaction, he turns around to face Corie and the collar is buttoned again.

A continuity problem with a live stage performance is peculiar, to say the least. Apparently, more than one performance was taped, and edited together for the HBO broadcast. See more »

I wish they would make a DVD available!
15 April 2008 | by mickeyx32See all my reviews

This was terrific---brilliantly funny! I only wish HBO would make this title available on DVD. I remember watching this version many years ago. I watched it many times as I thought it was so well put together. Bess Armstrong and Richard Thomas worked so well as the leading characters. Hans Conried and Barbara Barrie were no less than marvelous. Most of---if not all of the scenes were shot in the small two room apartment.

Are there any plans to make this title available? Is there are way to contact HBO for a request? So many great titles have been lost and I believe this is one of them.
