Synopsis
Christian Marquand's CANDY follows the adventures of a gorgeous, naive young woman (Ewa Aulin) who sets off into the world on a journey of sexual discovery. Along her personal yellow brick road, she encounters a wacked-out poet (Richard Burton), an enigmatic Mexican gardener (Ringo Starr), an evil general (Walter Matthau), a lascivious guru (Marlon Brando), and a wily surgeon (James Coburn), all of whom want their own personal taste of Candy. Can she fend them off in time to save her own soul?

With a script by Buck Henry (THE GRADUATE) based on the novel by Terry Southern (DR. STRANGELOVE), CANDY is a wacky send-up of Voltaire's CANDIDE and one of the zaniest sexcapades ever captured on film. Marquand's erotic comedy also features a rock-fueled 1960s soundtrack that includes the Byrds and Steppenwolf.
Notes
Theatrical release: December 17, 1968.

Ringo Starr's appearance in CANDY was his first outside of a Beatles movie.

Charles Aznavour is best known internationally as a singer.

CANDY was the first script Buck Henry worked on following the screenplay for THE GRADUATE. Henry appears briefly in CANDY as the straight-jacketed man in the elevator.
