Light comedy mixes with more intimate material in Isobel Lennart's adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play, with newly-wed Fonda dismayed to find that macho Korean vet husband Jim Hutton won't be winning any medals for services between the sheets, and taking their problem to more established couple Franciosa and Nettleton, who have in-law trauma of their own. All in all, it's an appealing mix, even if the shifts in tone seem to unsettle cast and director alike. First-rate performances, though, especially from Fonda, as a wide-eyed Southern belle.
