The Woman in Red

The woman in red is simply a very sexy contemporary (Kelly Le Brock), hired as a model by a San Francisco city agency, bringing her into contact with a mundane bureaucrat, Gene Wilder, heretofore a contented family man.

But one look at Le Brock, and Wilder is ready to risk all for illicit romance: he is not very adept at adultery.

The laughs roll along readily as Wilder tries one idea after another to sneak out on wife Judith Ivey and family to rendevous with Le Brock.

A wonderful diversion through all of this is Gilda Radner, a relatively plain fellow office worker who initially thinks she’s the object of Wilder’s wanderlust and is bitterly – and vigorously – disappointed when she finds out she isn’t. [Pic is based on 1976 French film, Pardon Mon Affaire, directed by Yves Robert.]
