The review below is unchanged but I am happy to inform everyone that Warner Archives released this movie. It is burned on demand.
You could classify this movie as the comedic version of Wall Street. Gordon Gecko - "Greed is good"
Max Hershel - "You don't get poor by taking."
It was wonderful to see Myrna Loy as Stella the protective and sensible secretary. Also who could forget Ali McGraw as Bones the intelligent and ambitious mistress caught up in Max's (Alan King's) selfish, crazy and hectic world. Dina Merrill as Connie was classy as usual. I have been a fan of Keenan Wynn since Finian's Rainbow and he was wonderful as Max's old rival Seymour Berger. Also, a very young Peter Weller as Bones's love interest Steven Routledge in his second big screen appearance.
I cherish my video of this movie and hope that Warner Bros. releases this movie on DVD before my VHS copy deteriorates.
"Just Tell Me..." isn't a perfect film, it gets a little lost in the middle with a sub-plot that drags. Still, the central love story, between Ali MacGraw and Alan King is hard to resist. She's smart. He's all bluster, but has a good heart. And you know that, deep down, they're made for each other -- even if his ego, business life and fractured marriage stand in the way. Myrna Loy is wonderful, as are Dina Merrill, Keenan Wynn and most of the talented supporting cast.
The movie brings Ali back to Old Westbury Gardens -- the mansion there was also used in "Love Story."
King has never been better, and he is hilarious when he loses his temper -- which is often. McGraw is also terrific, and strikes just the right balance between patient girl-on-the-side and super-successful girl-about-town. She knows what she wants. But getting it involves some serious (and seriously charming) negotiations with someone who has mastered the art of the deal.

Ali McGraw may not be the best actress you've ever seen, but she turned in one of her best performances in this romp, a modern version of the screwball comedies of the 30s & 40s. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Guy Ivie
