So what do you get when you combine an Ian Fleming novel, a James Bond parody, a huge budget, stellar 1960s set and costume design, a topnotch Burt Bacharach score, Woody Allen, Peter Sellers, David Niven, Ursula Andress, John Huston, Orson Welles, Deborah Kerr, William Holden, Charles Boyer, Jean Paul Belmondo, Barbara Bouchet and Jacqueline Bisset? Everyone knows the answer to this, right? You get an awful awful film. I will admit there are parts of the film I'm fond of, and not just "The Look of Love." Sellers has some funny bits and I have never disliked David Niven in anything. I also believe that this film contains the single most stunning, and stunningly filmed, cast of actresses. Name a film that has better. Proof below. My screencaps.
