A Hollywood composer goes through a mid-life crisis and becomes infatuated with a sexy, newly married woman.
First out-and-out comedy by husband and wife team Blake Edwards and Dame Julie Andrews. Their previous collaboration, Darling Lili (1970), was more of musical and not a full-on comedy. This was the first of five comedies Andrews and Edwards made together. The others being S.O.B. (1981), Victor Victoria (1982), The Man Who Loved Women (1983), and Victor/Victoria (1995).
I don't know what your problem is, but, I don't think you're going to solve it by trying to solve mine.
George Webber: Fine.
Jenny Hanley: And I don't think I really have a problem, George.
George Webber: That's your problem.
After George is caught at his neighbor's orgy, he returns home and tries to call Sam and then his psychiatrist. The reflection of a man in sunglasses can be seen in the window just above and to the left of the telephone in the low-angle shots.
When the credits of the cast begins to scroll up and out of the iris of the telescope's view into George and Samantha's penthouse, the members of the cast are listed but not the characters they played.
The TV print substitutes tamer versions of some of 10's racier moments. In particular, scenes featuring porn star Annette Haven as Dudley Moore's exhibitionist neighbor have been removed, replaced with scenes involving another actress. On scene features Moore's character using a telescope to watch a naked A. Haven making love (in the TV version, we see the substitute actress kissing a man while wearing a robe). A later scene, originally shown as a nude orgy, is replaced by a similar scene, but with everyone wearing bathing suits. In addition, the comedic lovemaking scene between Derek and Moore is played in the dark in the TV version.
