Product Description:

Meek, owlish writer Felix (George Segal) and strident, catty prostitute Doris (Barbra Streisand) live in the same apartment building. His incessant typing bothers her; her gentlemen callers bother him. When Felix reports Doris's rowdy activity to their landlord, she gets evicted. The free-spirited Doris then forces her way into Felix's apartment, as well as his heart. The Streisand/Segal pairing makes for classic comedy and heartwarming romance.

Plot Synopsis:

This boisterous adaptation of the Broadway play by Bill Manoff stars Barbra Streisand as Doris, a streetwise call girl, and George Segal as Felix, her bookish and shy neighbor. The two very different tenants are not getting along, and when Felix rats to their landlord about Doris's late-night activities, the landlord evicts the randy girl. However, Felix is in for more than he bargained for, as the persistent Doris forces him to let her move into his impossibly small New York apartment. Doris argues and Felix fumes as the unlikely pair attempt to coexist. Felix is a struggling writer looking for quiet to write; meanwhile, Doris chats and rants her way into the quiet writer's world. As their ongoing battle heats up, the two opposites realize their words of war really conceal feelings of love in this classic Streisand comedy-romance directed by Herb Ross.


Production Notes:

  • Porn star Marilyn Chambers (aka Evelyn Lang) makes a cameo appearance as Barney's girlfriend.
