Overview

Helen Gurley Brown's self-help best-seller was the nominal source for this Hollywood sex romp, directed by Richard Quine, co-scripted by Joseph Heller and David R. Schwartz, and starring Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood. Tony Curtis plays Bob Weston, a writer for a scandal magazine who is working on an article on research psychologist Helen Gurley Brown Natalie Wood and her best-selling book Sex and the Single Girl. Bob needs to interview Helen, but she refuses to see him. Bob impersonates one of her neighbors, Frank Broderick Henry Fonda, as a ruse in order to see her on the pretext of marital counseling. After several meetings, Bob attempts to seduce her, but she resists; then he phones her and claims he's about to commit suicide by jumping off a local pier. Horrified, she rushes out to save him, but the two accidentally fall off the pier together and then head back to Helen's apartment to dry out. Bob plies Helen with martinis. Rip-roaring drunk, Helen confesses her love for Bob. He assures her it's fine, since he's not legally married, but Helen doesn't believe him and asks to meet his wife, Sylvia Lauren Bacall. This leads to an endless series of complications, capped off by a wild chase to the Los Angeles airport.

    Romantic Comedy

    This is a wonderful romantic comedy featuring a wonderful, talented cast. I have seen this movie many times and continue to enjoy it just as much as the first time I saw it.

    One of the funniest movies ever made

    An all star cast make one of the funniest movies ever produced. Absolutely, no reservation, contains the best chase scene ever made. Better than Hope and Crosby. Larry Storch is incredible. Lauren Bacall and Henry Fonda are at their funniest, although Fonda did not like the film. Tony Curtis and Natilie Wood are simply electric. This is an edge of your chair movie which must be seen many times to catch all the funny lines. Inspired by the antics of the nutty Helen Gurley Brown, this movie displays to the 10's the comic genius of many Hollywood legends. A Do-Not-Miss romantic comedy. We rate this movie AAAAA+. Sadly, it is not yet available on DVD
