A Guide For The Married Man (1967)
I can see this movie getting a lot of men in trouble back upon its release. Especially if that man's best girl has any kind of doubt to what he has been doing. Perhaps he hasn't been working late.
A Guide For The Married Man shows men as they are. Lustful idiots who usually think with the wrong head. Of course the movie also portrays women in a rather dim light but hey it was the times.
Walter Matthau plays Paul, a happily married man who just can't seem to keep his eyes off of the ladies and I can't exactly blame him because he is surrounded by hot babes where ever he goes. His wife Ruth is the perfect house wife and there is nobody in the world Paul would rather be with. That is with the exception for any women at the moment. Paul's best friend is a professional cheater and is trying to teach Paul how to have a respectable affair.
That's what makes A Guide For The Married Man so great. It has so many realistic moments in it and it still manages to be funny and sexy at the same time.
Amongst Jayne Mansfield and Walter Matthau is Lucille Ball (I Love Lucy), Inger Steven's (Hang Em High), Sue Ane Langdon (It Came Without Warning), Linda Harrison (Planet Of The Apes) and plenty of other fine looking females.
This one is for the guys. Just tell your best girl that you're working late.
