What's New Pussycat (1965, USA/FRA) C-108m. *** D: Clive Donner. Starring Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole, Romy Schneider, Capucine, Paula Prentiss, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress, Edra Gale, Jess Hahn, Howard Vernon, Richard Burton, Louise Lasser. Classic 60s comedy with Sellers and Capucine fresh from their PINK PANTHER success, and film strikes the same vein, as womanizer O'Toole is afraid of marrying his true love Schneider and tells psychiatrist Sellers, who has the hots for Capucine. A bit too episodic but great fun, especially in mad-cap finale. Allen's breakthrough script is full of his trademark humor. Oscar-nominated score by Burt Bacharach with the title song by Tom Jones.
