Who Was That Lady? (Columbia 1960, Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis)

Published

on


In Who Was That Lady? Janet Leigh catches her husband, Tony Curtis, a Columbia University professor, kissing one of his students and prepares for divorce. Turning to his friend Dean Martin for advice, the men concoct a tale that he’s an F.B.I. agent on undercover duty and that the kiss was part of his cover. Leigh believes the story – but she’s not the only one. The farce continues with Russian spies, TV news crews, U.S. agents all chasing each other until a truth serum reveals the romantic escapades that led to espionage.

While making the spy spoof Janet Leigh was injured in a scene in which she was to pour a bucket of water on Tony Curtis. Leigh slipped on the wet floor and sustained cuts and bruises from an iron grate.
