Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
George Roy's Hill's sprightly comedy harks back to a more innocent age in which the libido of teenage girls could be diverted into an infatuation with an eccentric pianist. Peter Sellers stars as Henry Orient, the unwilling object of the affections of two close friends (Tippy Walker and Merrie Spaeth); Orient, on the other hand, is doing his utmost to lure Tippy's more age-appropriate mother Angela Lansbury and any other willing woman into his bed. The film switches amusingly between Sellers' difficulty in keeping the girls at bay while he's conducting his farcical seductions, to their charming romantic fantasies about their personal god. As the plot develops, Hill also subtly insinuates a serious theme about parental responsibility without in any way hampering the film's comic spirit. Any opportunity to appreciate the genius of Sellers is worth the trouble, but the two young girls are equally delightful in their roles, and Lansbury is memorable as the selfish mother.

    A Cinematic Valentine to New York.

    A rare combination of humor and sensitivity makes this 1964 comedy very special. It tells a wacky story about a madly egocentric and overly amorous concert pianist (Peter Sellers) who is hilariously pursued all around New York City by two teenage fans. The world that is Henry Orient's by title belongs by eminent domain to a couple of adolescent charmers who make the city their playground, its grownups their toys, and their share of the film a thing of joyous beauty. The adoring girls are brilliantly and naturally portrayed by Tippy Walker and Merrie Spaeth, and they steal the film right from under the talented noses of Sellers and a fine company of actors including Angela Lansbury, Paula Prentiss, Tom Bosley, Phyllis Thaxter and Bibi Osterwald. New York is photographed to great advantage in Panavision and Elmer Bernstein provides the wonderful music score. George Roy Hill ("A Little Romance") offers some sparkling directorial touches, all resulting in 106 minutes of happiness and charm. [filmfactsman]
