I was surprized to come across this relic from the Dorothy Parker archives. We don't often see Mrs. Parker's name bandied about these days. As a 'friend of Dorothy" I naturally had to check it out. The biggest surprize is seeing John Lithgow with a full head of dark hair. Of course he was good in the role of the husband. Even better, as the wife, was Sally Kellerman, who was best known as the original Margaret "Hot Lips" Hoolighan from the Robert Altman film "Mash." It's unfortunate that she did not go on to other roles (she tried being a chantuse for a while, with little fanfare) as she is very affective in this one. See it for her performance. Even better, read the short stories of Dottie Parker, or the book reviews (Winnie the Pooh), or the movie reviews ('Katherine Hepburn ran the gamut of emotion from A to B').
