A great film it isn't, but highly watchable just the same. What makes it fascinating is that Sellers' character of a cheesy seducer seems so close to the image we have of the man. Presenting himself with the chance to make a new life with the sassy, sexy, much younger Marion - a wonderful turn from Goldie Hawn - gourmet and charmer Robert Danvers goes clean out of his comfort zone. The comedy of innuendoes and crossed wires doesn't flag. And there's real pathos in the neurotic, temperamental edge Sellers gives his character: the vulnerability that lies beneath the charm.
Odd that a man we think of as an iconic sixties star was perhaps already out of date when the sixties came along.
