Q&A with Buck Henry after Nov. 13 screening!
In her first non-musical lead, Barbra Streisand brings brassy joie de vivre to the part of Doris, a quick-witted New York call girl who, through a series of screwball situations, finds herself sharing a small apartment with Felix (George Segal), a mousy Doubleday clerk who dreams of a writing career. At first, feathers are ruffled and fur flies, but before long these polar opposites find themselves falling for one another. Crisply directed by Herbert Ross from a witty screenplay by Oscar-nominee Buck Henry (The Graduate), The Owl and the Pussycat finds its two stars in top form and generating real romantic chemistry. Watch for future adult film superstar Marilyn Chambers, billed as Evelyn Lang, in a supporting role.
