If you can get past the corn...


I literally had to mute it a coupla times. I mean the part with Carol Baker saying "Oh, yes, yes, yes" was embarassing. And other parts. But probably totally fitting for a sexy film in 1964. I think the crux of the movie was Jonas learning about humility. But he sure didn't. In Monica's office, she says "do you want me to get fired?" And Jonas, still the ahole, says "I'll buy this magazine if I have to."

That wouldn't happen today. The screenwriter would emphasize him as becoming truly humble in a current script. I think, back then, the audience just wanted the passion. Things have really evolved. Can you imagine the reviews today?

What do you got on? Loafers? You don't slaughter animals in loafers!
