What a Way to Go! – 1964 – English
Synopsis: This black comedy opens with Louisa Foster donating a multimillion dollar check to the IRS. The tax department thinks she’s crazy and sends her to a psychiatrist. She then discusses her four marriages, in which all of her husbands became incredibly rich and died prematurely because of their drive to be rich.
Review: They don’t make them like this anymore, no flashy effects to help the film along.
Great script, great character work by everyone in the film. While the cavalcade of stars in this film is rather impressive that does not always translate into a great film.
What a Way to Go! manages to make it all work though. Sets are designed to give the viewer more of a live theater type of appeal which helps to keep the storyline as the main focus.
This deserves to be on DVD and definitely would be worth the buy, Yet sadly is not available. If you get a chance to see this on TV or anywhere else, it’s worth the watch.
