Next to this he does not pay his bills, is unemployed and not seeking for work, or, if he has a job, losing it easily. And he goes from one woman to the next ... they flock to him, he thinks, so they're not his problem. Samson Shillitoe (Connery) is, in short, sexist and insensitive. He also has the habit of almost-hitting his wife whenever he feels like doing that.
He only wants to work on his poem, and he needs, above all, time and rest. Neither seem to be available in considerable quantities, especially not if the past keeps getting in the way.
Lots of problems, but they're in the case of A Fine Madness tackled with comedy. While I thought the film was at all times amusing, certain scenes stood out. One other reviewer (there are at this time only 3 or so; you'll find him/her) mentioned the poetry recital. Good material!
I just hope you like the style of this film. Somewhat dated, yes, but what do you want? This is how old? From the sixties? I forgot.
Four adulterous affairs plus one abusive psychotic marriage equals one typical Khazarian Hollywood piece of Ashkenazi Drek!
Add shallow acting, amateurish directing/photography and breakneck pace from hell and you have a total waste of time and money...poor Sean!
Even the producer's name is "Hell man!"
The DVD includes a very short documentary of Connery behind-the-scenes in downtown Manhattan. Thers is a shot of a place called "Fascination" which was to reappear in a quick shot as Robert De Niro drove his cab in TAXI DRIVER. I have been "fascinated" ever since as to what this business establishment is.

Not funny. Not believable. Amoral. And rug scrubber shampoo was carefully developed to be low sudsing.Published 5 months ago by Rod H.
Sean Connery is a hoot in this offbeat yarn. I love it. It is certainly unique.Published 7 months ago by gobirds2
Interesting film for the mid 1960's. Connery is nothing like his 007 persona. I doubt this will come up on cable very often.Published 11 months ago by ZEPLEN
