Movie-wise, there has never been anything like it - laugh-wise, love-wise, or otherwise-wise!
Bud Baxter is a minor clerk in a huge New York insurance company, until he discovers a quick way to climb the corporate ladder. He lends out his apartment to the executives as a place to take their mistresses. Although he often has to deal with the aftermath of their visits, one night he's left with a major problem to solve.

i'm not fan of old movies or say they never make them like this now but this movie was almost excellent. it started light weight and comedy feel and it ended up a bit dramatic but nevertheless the performances were beyond perfect. A must see for movie lovers

Really not sure how I feel about this one--performances were amazing and left me disliking pretty much everybody; story was a very smart commentary on love and sex at the beginning of the sexual revolution--and maybe even still.
