After a brief holiday romance in Greece, Ann Stanley (a woman of 40) finds romance with 20-year-old Peter Latham in this comedy drama. Ann does not imagine that she’ll see Peter again. But, back in New York, they meet by chance and find that they are still attracted to one another.
Swedish import Liv Ullmann, in the role played on stage by Lauren Bacall, doesn’t fit into the sophisticated New York whirl presented here, and no matter how hard she tries, her affair with younger Edward Albert remains unconvincing.
But debonair Gene Kelly, as her ex-husband, is a joy to discover in this wisp of fluff, despite his awkward toupee.
Veterans Binnie Barnes and Nancy Walker also keep the pot boiling, though this slight confection needs a very indulgent audience indeed.
