A Guide for the Married Man
Time Out saysWalter Matthau, who was passed over for the film version of The Seven Year Itch at the beginning of his Hollywood career after playing it on Broadway, comes down with the 12-year itch in this garbled bourgeois satire. Robert Morse is the adulterous neighbour who gives his friend the lowdown on the dos and don'ts of doing it, with star-studded illustrations featuring Lucille Ball, Phil Silvers, Jayne Mansfield and the like (among a host of guest cameos). These occasionally inventive situations score intermittently, but it's an unappealing effort on the whole.
