One of the strangest most distasteful films to ever play Radio City at Easter.
Despite its good reviews word of mouth traveled fast and it did poorly and this during a time when holiday shows at the Hall always did well. George Roy Hill said he never wanted another of his films to play there.
Its incongruity at the Hall as a holiday movie was surpassed the following year at Easter with the bleak gritty violent Operation Crossbow. I’m not sure what the programmers there were thinking.
Still its a great ad and made you think you were going to see a bright and funny Peter Sellers' comedy which you definitely did not.
You would have to wait a number of weeks for that. And it would be a classic.
