What's New Pussycat? (1965. Directed by Clive Donner)


This mess of a farce directed by Donner is Woody Allen's first filmed script.
It's been a while since I've watched this and the jokes stood up pretty well.
On top of this you have Peter Sellers dressed as a Beatle (though looking
more like John Cale in his VU period), Peter O'Toole dashing as the lead,
Woody in his first film role, Ursula Andress as a nympho parachutist in a
skimpy orange bikini, Burt Bacharach penning the soundtrack and
Hardy in an uncredited cameo. So final conclusion is, despite
the 60's
wackiness, what's not to like?
