Description

Jack Lemmon (Some Like It Hot, the Apartment) stars as Stanley Ford, a successful cartoonist happily living a carefree, single and unattached life in Manhattan. His life takes a dramatic turn after a drunken proposal to a woman (Virna Lisi the Secret of Santa Vittoria, Queen Margot) who pops out of a cake at a friend's bachelor party. Regretting his decision he asks for a divorce. Unfortunately, the new Mrs. Ford will have none of it. His Italian-only speaking bride soon takes over his house and his life. Frustrated and seeing no way out of his current predicament, Stanley's cartoon strip begins to shift, reflecting his inner, darker thoughts. How can Stanley solve the problem? Well, if you're the character in his comic strip the only way out may be murder.

Synopsis
Cartoonist Stanley Ford, a confirmed bachelor, attends a party one evening... and is bewitched by a blonde Italian knockout who pops out of a cake. Then he does a very stupid thing. He marries her on the spot. Though his new wife is a happy homemaker, a man's man like Stanley has no stomach for domestic bliss. When his attempts at separation fail, he gets an idea. Known for always acting out his hero's scenarios before putting ink to page, he stages her murder and sketches a cartoon based on the scheme. When his wife sees the funny pages, she is frightened and vanishes. Mission accomplished. Not so fast, however, as the police appear and now want to ask him a few questions about his wife's whereabouts...
