Lightweight comic fluff with a solid cast and crew behind it. Warren Beatty plays an aspiring NYC filmmaker, well, A nudie film filmmaker, and finds inspiration when it meets an attractive widow at his apartment building, Leslie Caron, by including her toddler son as comic relief in his films. There's also something of a love triangle between Beatty, Caron and Caron's boss Robert Cummings, but it's all very silly and punctuated by lots of musical-like sequences and a surprising amount of ladies appearing in various states of undress for a film of it's time. The film was written by future author of "The Exorcist," William Peter Blatty, and was directed by Arthur Hiller. The film also features a very catchy theme song by Burt Bacharach, sung by the great Tom Jones. And look fast for a young Donald Sutherland in an uncredited role as an autograph seeking father.

Hardly Leslie Caron or Warren Beatty's finest moment. What a disappointment.

3.5 stars! Surprisingly serendipitious and very 60s kitchy movie about a young struggling artist (Beatty) and a young widow (Caron) with a baby boy - both living in the same apartment building and brought together by circumstance. Both are in very different roles than they typically play and Beatty in particular was just charming.
