Dir. Elaine May (1971). Elaine May wrote her first feature, casting herself as a dithering schlemiela hapless heiress with an unlikely fondness for Mogen David spritzers, wooed and won by Walter Matthaus penniless WASP and would-be bluebeard. Its a devastating psychodrama, masquerading as amiable dark comedy; May sued her studio when they recut the movie to save her character's life.
