The first feature film script written by Woody Allen to be produced, this so-so comedy stars Peter O’Toole as a notorious ladies’ man who wants very much to settle down and marry his beautiful fiancee (). Unfortunately, women are coming out of the woodwork constantly and keep falling for him, making it very difficult to commit. Peter Sellers stars as O’Toole’s loopy psychiatrist, while the supporting cast is rounded by and as vixen babes, and Allen himself as comic relief. Lots of hilarious moments, particularly when the entire cast checks into the same hotel towards the end of the picture, but the years have not been kind to this comedy.

Academy Award Nomination:  Best Song (“What’s New Pussycat?”)
