Directed by David Swift • 1964 • United States
Starring Jack Lemmon, Romy Schneider, Dorothy Provine
Romy Schneider shines in one of the very few films she made in Hollywood, an endearingly wacky farce that takes a classic screwball premise and gives it a gleaming 1960s Technicolor update. Happily married advertising agent Sam Bissell (Jack Lemmon) agrees to help out his happily divorced single neighbor Janet Langerlof (Schneider) by posing as her husband so she can inherit $15 million. The scheme soon spirals out of control when his prudish boss (Edward G. Robinson) gets involved and her greedy in-laws hit the scene.
