A satire of what used to be called "feminine wiles," this star-studded film is a musical adaptation of Clare Booth Luce's 1936 Broadway hit, "The Women," and the film of the same title released in 1939. Kay (June Allyson) almost loses her man (Leslie Nielsen) to the sexy Crystal Allen (Joan

Collins) and discovers she must adopt her rival's predatory tactics to win him back. Along the way, the rest of the cast provides comic relief, helpful advice, and catty gossip while winning, losing, and maneuvering in the game of love. The film falls far short of its cinematic predecessor, George

Cukor's all-star, all-female THE WOMEN. Songs by Nicholas Brodszky, Sammy Cahn, George Stoll, and Ralph Freed include: "The Opposite Sex," "Dere's Yellow Gold on de Trees (De Banana)" (sung by Collins), "A Perfect Love" (sung by Allyson), "Rock and Roll Tumbleweed" (sung by Richards with Mooney),

"Now! Baby, Now" (sung by Collins), "Jungle Red," "Young Man with a Horn" (sung by Allyson with Harry James).
