What's New Pussycat? (1965)

Clive Donner’s sex farce based on a Woody Allen script is one of the more amusing examples of the ample sex comedies that proliferated in the “swinging” 1960s. While still very much tangled in the decade, there are enough verbal and visual gags to keep one tickled. The superb cast is up for the shenanigans: Peter Sellers, Peter O’Toole, Woody Allen and a quartet of delectable comediennes (Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss, Ursula Andress) all bring their particular brand of idiosyncrasy to the proceedings. The irresistibly catchy score is by Burt Bacharach.
