Product Description

Fashion photographer and unrepentant lover-of-women Michael (Peter O'Toole) lives in Paris, home of the world's most beautiful women. When it becomes clear that more or less every woman who sees him in certain lighting conditions will fall instantly in love with him Michael decides to get professional help. However what he gets from the group analysis sessions conducted by insane psychoanalyst Dr Fassbender (Peter Sellers) do little to prepare him for commitment to his long-suffering fiancée Carol (Romy Schneider). Patient and doctor end up at Chateau Chantal, a hotel for those conducting subtle bourgeois 'affaires', pursued by a mob of women and angry cuckolded husbands for a dramatic denouement...

4.0 out of 5 stars A busy little film 4 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Loud, garish and full of energy. Very much of its time and worth viewing for that alone.
Peter O'Toole plays an unlikely ladies man, given that he bears a strong resemblance to a ventriloquist's dummy (anyone who remembers 'Lord Charles' will get the picture) and does plenty of his trademark yelling. Romy Schneider is beautiful as his commitment-seeking regular girl. Sellers goes nicely over the top as sex-obsessed therapist, Doctor Fassbender, and Capucine is an elegant treat for the eyes, portraying a classy nymphomaniac.
Set in France - presumably to emphasise the stereo-type of France being the land of lovers - O'Toole finds himself pursued relentlessly by a bevy of beauties at every turn, while trying to be faithful to his girl.
Dreadful editing and continuity, but what this film lacks in polish it makes up for in vigour, capturing the breathless energy which was emerging in the sixties. Great music, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars How You Cats Will Laugh! 7 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The quintessential comedy of the sixties. The first movie to be written by Woody Allen it stars Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole and a bevy of beauties including Ursula Andress and Paula Prentiss. Stuffed full of wonderful quotes and a slew of physical comedy, the film showcases one of Seller's greatest comedic performances. The plot concerns a womaniser's - a handsome Peter O'Toole - attempts to straighten up before marrying the woman he loves; cue revelations on the psychiatrist's coach, encounters in strip clubs and Fellini pastiche dream sequences. Not forgetting a soundtrack by Bert Bacharach featuring Dionne Warwick and Tom Jones. The film suffers from some flaky direction and the plot meanders somewhat but this rarely detracts from the fun. The film is banned in Norway because of a scene where Peter Sellers tries to commit suicide by burning himself wrapped in a Norwegian flag.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic farce 3 Oct 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Sellers film has everything: great music, one of Sellers' great characters (a sex-mad, unloved psychiatrist), a very funny romantic lead in O'Toole, and Woody Allen in great form. It also has genuinely funny ladies and a nostalgic 1960s Paris. There are great set-pieces. The go-cart race at the end doesn't contribute anything to its strengths. The symbolism of the film illustrates the trouble that the sexual liberation trend of the 60s must cause to everyone, whether the romantic lead, the small man with specs, or the husband, etc, with plenty of business for the psychiatrist. So like all Sellers' great characters he was able to take his part seriously even in this pure farce.

4.0 out of 5 stars All out zaniness but also all over the place 20 Jun 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mad as a strange cheese, this movie is scriptwriter Woody Allen's first screenplay, so that goes a long way to explain the complete unevenness and disorganistion of this movie. It took him 15 years of practice after this to actually produce anything resembling a cohesive, non-fragmentary narrative and a further five to stop telling the same jokes, so really, if you want to watch this film because you're a Sellers, O'Toole or Romy Schneider fan (she is delectable in this) then you will simply have to bare all the worst excesses of this man's craft. Of course he also makes it hilarious most of the time, and this does compensate for the very bumpy ride. He has a strong part himself and he made sure he would have some sort of film career with a full on slapstick Woody Allen performance. O'Toole just gets stuck into the chaos of it all and proves how adept at comedy he was, and Sellers puts on another silly wig and another silly voice and, effortlessly conjuring up a character from his Goon days, out zanes everyone, even Woody Allen. It is madness and you really do wonder what they put in the director's tea, or if it was infact just Allen's cat with a beret on, (and glasses of course) in charge of it all. Either way, it certainly has its moments and leaves an impression - mostly of the 1960s being a very fun and whacky place to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest film I have seen in along time. 5 July 2012

This film kept me laughing from the very first scene. I loved it so much I watched it 3 times in 2 days! Sellers is brilliant and captivating and O'Toole is hysterical and very gorgeous.

4.0 out of 5 stars not bad comedy 60's period piece 20 Nov 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I suppose this movie starts out vey promisingly from the opening titles which are luscious to the opening scenes with Dr Fassbender (Peter Sellars) a psychotherapist with his Wagnerian wife in their quite unbelievable "castle" apartment. Indeed the parts with Dr Fassbender are the funniest (and some with Woody Allen also) but the attempts to draw out the plot to a conclusion, leave the film somewhat on the run out of steam. The main theme of the story, - Peter O'Tooles failure to commit to his fiance, because of the continual diversion of beautiful alternatives grates a bit on the modern sensibility and the continual subjugation of women is offensive. If you enjoy slapstick the final few minutes you will enjoy. a piece of its time

I had forgotten how silly this film was, but Tom Jones singing the title track is well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it 26 Dec 2005
Format:DVD
If you like 60's films you'll love this. While the editing is awful the atmosphere is good and Woody Allens script has many great lines. Sellars is terrific and Romy Schneider captivating. This film is probably best enjoyed by people who like a trip down memory lane and if thats you then buy it.
