The April Fools (1969)

A wonderful, woefully underrated romantic film from 1969. True, the film isn't perfect (a section involving drunken businessmen could have easily been excised) but overall it is a lovely film with a great cast. Jack Lemmon and Catherine Deneuve strike just the right notes, while Myrna Loy has a great cameo. Some of the sequences are some of the most romantic scenes made in the late 1960's. Highly recommended.

Sounds like a good one.  I have not seen it before.  Anything with Myrna Loy is always a pleasure to watch!

This song is one of Bacharach-David's best.
