Canadian director Donald Shebib has a superb light touch with actors, and the relaxed yet precise work he gets here lends real dimension to a somewhat trite story. Doug McGrath and Paul Bradley are two provincial duffers who come to Toronto to get their share of the glamorous good life they’ve seen on TV; just because they’ve worked as unskilled laborers all their lives doesn’t mean they can’t step straight into swank ad agency jobs. Made on a very low budget in 1970, the film is an excellent example of the funky, provisional Canadian cinema that was effectively snuffed out by the tax-shelter inflation of the industry; regrettably, Shebib never really found his place since.
