a screw­ball com­edy from 1972 that seems not to have got the memo that screw­ball come­dies were, by then, a thing of the past. Breath­ing life into the most 1930s of gen­res are Bar­bra Streisand as a brash chancer on the make and Ryan O’neal as a pro­fes­sor in the same hotel to ad­dress a stuffy con­ven­tion (along with sup­port from Made­line Khan, Ken­neth Mars and Austin Pendle­ton). O’neal’s specs will re­mind the ea­gle-eyed of Cary Grant’s in Bring­ing Up Baby and that’s just the vibe that di­rec­tor Peter Bog­danovich is af­ter. And nails.
