Review by DLynch (posted on 25-Aug-2007)

Interesting now for that 1964 color and its depiction of the American wacky suburban world of martinis, dancing to the cha-cha music on the hi-fi, sexual giggles and TV commercial advertising. Complete with hysterics, screams, and a skulking Louie Nye as a private investigator. Lemmon is fine. Dorothy Provine is perky and putrid. Mike Connors before he made Mannix. The billboard painting wind-up has great color.
