A good story about marriage crackups among the fortyish set in suburbia.

George Segal Eva Marie Saint Sterling Hayden Keenan Wynn Nancie Phillips Janis Young

A good story about marriage crackups among the fortyish set in suburbia.

A novel by J. M. Ryan was basis for the script, which is handicapped by a protagonist who, while not supposed to be sympathetic, isn’t even interesting in his selfishness and immaturity.

George Segal is the character, an aging commercial artist who would seem in reality to have been long-since crushed by the forces against which he continually rails. Eva Marie Saint is quite outstanding as the slightly-nagging but steadfast wife. Her character is also hampered by some incredulity of premise, but she more than overcomes the liability.

Within script limitations, cast delivers well, Saint in the extreme, Segal however never quite believable.
