Billy Wilder’s ironic 1964 tale of a one-night exchange of partners, a cuckolded husband who is none the wiser and three others who are none the worse off for it. Damned at the time for being “dirty,” Wilder’s film is (according to the maestro himself) about the theme of human dignity and the sanctity of marriage. In any event, this has to rank as Wilder’s most corrosive and despairing portrait of America. The action takes place in Climax, Nevada, where Kim Novak takes Dean Martin into the garden to show him her parsley. With Ray Walston, Felicia Farr, and Cliff Osmond.
