While awaiting the outcome of her husband's surgery, Julie Messinger discovers he has been having affairs.
The original novel by 'Lois Gould' was much more serious in tone (many of the barbed, humorous lines of the film are missing entirely from the novel). 'Otto Preminger' saw the satirical potential in such a premise and wrote it as such.

In the film's opening, three red-colored "legs-crossed icons" (the trademark that Saul Bass created for the film, as seen on the poster) converge on a blank screen to form one whole icon. The title appears and then below the title, it reads "AN OTTO PREMINGER FILM". Cast and crew are credited in the closing, but nowhere else. Preminger was the only one credited in the opening.
