Two For The Seesaw

Robert Mitchum is a midwestern lawyer and Shirley MacLane a beatnik dancer who meet in New York. Directed by Robert Wise

The film is based on a play and has kept the talky tone. Unfortunately, the conversations are never that funny or interesting. Mitchum and MacLaine seem mismatched - even though they ended up having an affair - and the whole will they hook up or split up part of the film gets a bit tiresome. It's not fair, but it's hard not to compare it to the superior The Apartment. Looks great in widescreen black and white, though.
