Peter und Tillie: Directed by Martin Ritt. With Walter Matthau, Carol Burnett, Geraldine Page, Barry Nelson. Tillie Shlai’s not looking forward to meeting yet another blind date. This one’s name being Pete Seltzer. Pete and Tillie are not a match made in heaven, he using wisecracking and constant flirtations with women to mask his own insecurities. Despite Tillie’s guard being up, Pete’s able slowly to chip away at her defenses. They embark on a relationship which ends up in a mutual declaration to get married

“The dialog between Matthau and Carol Burnett is in itself worth the price of admission.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWatch Mathhauu0026#39;s delivery. Watch how he communicates his own appreciation for his lines — his smug self-satisfaction almost makes us believe that he wrote this stuff himself.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDefinitely not for Bruce Willis fans.”
