The cinematic equivalent of pudding

Witless farce from the usually-estimable comedy writer Melvin Frank, who also produced and directed, stars Rock Hudson as an American oil company executive in London, married but estranged from fiery Gina Lollobrigida for the past seven years, who must present a happily-united front for the company's general (why? so it'll "look good"). When Rock first meets Gina, she's an artist painting protest slogans on signs and walls--but the movie is so bashful, her signs are always half-finished so we won't know what she's protesting against. They marry immediately (presumably so they can have sex without guilt), but the next morning find they have nothing in common. Frank, who co-authored the screenplay with Michael Pertwee from a rather old-fashioned story he originated with Norman Panama, substitutes shouting for snap--and Lollobrigida does must of the shouting. Hudson tries to keep up with her, but his colorless brand of acting assures that he'll blend in with the furniture and nothing more. Atrociously shot by cinematographer Leo Tover, with the phony backdrops and scrappy rear-projection upstaging even Gina Lollobrigida in a variety of 'kooky' outfits. * from ****

The Oilman and the Bohemian

The Strange Bedfellows are Rock Hudson and Gina Lollabrigida, a married but separated couple, separated now for seven years. Gina would like a divorce because she wants to marry her new boss Edward Judd. But Rock has reasons to want to patch things up. He's in line for a big promotion on his job and the old money in the person of Howard St. John that runs the company likes the stability of a family man in his top executives.

Rock and Gina had a lot of passion in their relationship. Great for sex, but they brought into other things and didn't agree on anything. Gina is a bohemian free spirit and Rock is a conservative oil executive and is that ever a redundancy.

Gig Young is in a typical Gig Young part and I did love seeing the way Edward Judd got over him pretending to be a British secret agent. Paul Lynde did a fabulous job in Rock's Send Me No Flowers as a funeral director and since the film is set in London, Terry-Thomas steps in and does a fine job as a British funeral director.

Strange Bedfellows is not as good as Rock's films with Doris Day, not quite as good as his previous film with Lollabrigida, Come September. Still I think it will please audiences today.

The blonde Lady Godiva

This absurd comedy conceived by Melvin Frank and Norman Panama, a successful team that were pretty active in the Hollywood of the 40s and 50s, was an uninspired project to begin with. The film that was trying to capitalize on the stars because the screenplay does not present any surprises, or breaks any new ground. Michael Pertwee is also given credit for helping with the writing.

Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida had appeared together in the light comedy "Come September", directed by Robert Mulligan. Rock Hudson was at a high point of his movie career. His character, Carter Harrison, is the same role he repeated from film to film, with the exception, perhaps, of "Pillow Talk". Gina Lollobrigida's American career had its moment, but she never big in this country.

The best thing, and unfortunately it comes at the end, is the sequence in which Terry-Thomas appears as the befuddled undertaker that has no clue as to what is really going on in his work area. Gig Young did what he could with the thin material he was given. Nancy Kulp shows in a couple of scenes also.
