The War between Men and Women comes off as a firstrate comedy peopled by some delicious humans, as well as a pregnant pooch.

The War between Men and Women comes off as a firstrate comedy peopled by some delicious humans, as well as a pregnant pooch.

A longer fantasy sequence dramatizes Thurber’s The Last Flower. Insertions are logically introduced and considerably enliven the action as a novelty device.

Lemmon is an acerbic and grumpy NY writer and cartoonist whose failing eyesight and unflattering way of dealing with women in his works make him a natural for arousing the interest of Barbara Harris. Her children, even the dog, are unfriendly, and further problems arise when the near-bride’s former spouse arrives during the marriage ceremony and stays on.
