By William Timothy Lukeman TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 19, 2014
Format: DVD
Here's a surprisingly entertaining artifact from 1963, essentially an independent film about the life of a bachelor in New York City. From the title, you might expect one of those bad, low-budget exploitation flicks that lack even the vulgar courage to be unabashedly smutty, resulting in embarrassment for the actors & the viewers alike. Instead, it's a solid, wry little comedy that gradually slides into pathos quite naturally.

The story: our title bachelor Skip O'Hara (William Traylor) is happily engaged at last. While he's out of his apartment, his bride-to-be comes across his diary & starts to read all about his amorous escapades, which unfold in a series of flashbacks. She's outraged, but can't stop reading, of course!

The diary begins with confidence as Skip revels in his life of freedom -- lots of women, lots of commitment-free sex, interspersed by long nights spent playing cards with the boys while sharing stories. But as the story progresses, we see just how many of Skip's conquests end badly for him, as his bravado is humorously deflated ... and the humor has an increasingly painful sting. In fact, the women wind up doing much better for themselves than the men overall.

A lesser film would turn into a rigid morality tale, where marriage to the right women cures Skip's ills. But the ending here is a bit sadder & wiser than that. The film walks a delicate line, never heavy-handed, never too silly. Its tone is more understated; in some ways, it anticipates "Alfie" by a couple of years. I found myself enjoying it far more than I would have anticipated. It has an easy looseness, a sense of playing it by ear, that's quite appealing. And because it doesn't take itself too seriously, it's able to make some serious points almost in passing.

I enjoyed this movie - lighthearted, with a couple of really nice supporting actors - the lead's best buddy is excellent, and an unexpected twist to the ending. Definitely a movie of it's time, but one that can be enjoyed still.

Incredibly average. Really has nothing to redeem it.
