Maybe this was suppose to represent the wild '60s when young women could be independent and people got divorced and we didn't talk about domestic violence.
It was not what I would call a great movie but I like Shirley MacLaine.
The amount of smoking was incredible - everyone and every where! Perhaps it was suppose to be edgy - but Robert Mitchum seemed stiff and out of place. It was a bit shocking when he actually hit her and it wasn't a bit deal!
Mitchum, 45, an attorney in mid-life-crisis before the term was in common use, cuddles up to MacLaine, 29, dancer turned costume designer, for comfort and understanding and ...but more would spoil. Suffice to say that this story has half the screen conflict of the Elizabeth Taylor - Richard Burton "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" that nearly sent old-toto screaming out of the theater. The good news is that M&M sparked a life-time romance out of this gig. Great example how Hollywood c.1962 could skillfully craft a movie. Yes, in 1962 everyone literally smoked frequently in films as one could light up in most theaters and would when the "stars" lit up. (This 'power of suggestion' caused millions of cigarettes to be consumed.) Of course, actors still could not literally get under the same covers without one foot on the floor, and, generally speaking showed very little provocative flesh. They could have their movement perfectly syncopated with background music and the lighting was superb.
