DIRECTOR: BLAKE EDWARDS
CAST: JACK LEMMON, JULIE ANDREWS
Approaching his 60th birthday party, accomplished architect Harvey Fairchild (Jack Lemmon) is deeply depressed, while his songstress wife (Andrews) waits on results from a throat cancer screening that could spell the end of her career—or worse. Potential pathos becomes the stuff of comedy in this long-weekend character piece, featuring visits from Catholic priest Robert Loggia and fortune-teller Felicia Farr, shot in Edwards and Andrews’s own Malibu home and made independently, paid for out-of-pocket. A late-career masterpiece.
