Sex and the Single Girl (Warner 1964, Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood)

Published

on


This slapstick sex comedy has absolutely nothing to do with Cosmopolitan magazine publisher Helen Gurley Brown’s book, but does boast a script by Joseph Heller, the author of ‘Catch-22’. Tony Curtis gets an assignment to expose the director of ‘The International Institute of Advanced Marital and Pre-Marital Studies’ (Natalie Wood) as a virgin. Featuring Henry Fonda and Lauren Bacall, Curtis’s battling neighbors, who get mixed up in the scheme when the reporter uses Fonda’s name as an alias. This seemed sophisticated then.

Five major players in Sex and the Single Girl were married to notable actors: Natalie Wood to Robert Wagner; Tony Curtis to Janet Leigh; Lauren Bacall to Humphrey Bogart; Henry Fonda to Margaret Sullavan; and Mel Ferrer to Audrey Hepburn.
