This comedy has both a stage and film version. Barney Cashman, a middle-aged nebbish wants to join the sexual revolution before it is too late. A gentle restaurant manager with no experience in adultery fails in each of three seductions: Elaine Navazio, a sexpot who likes cigarettes, whiskey and other women’s husbands; Bobbi Michele, an actress friend who he discovers is madder than a hatter; and Jeannette Fisher, his wife’s best friend, a staunch moralist.
