Neil Simon's classic comedy

Neil Simon's BAREFOOT IN THE PARK remains to this day a breathless comedy delight, the universal story of two newlyweds and their rocky road to marital bliss. Following a 6-day (and night) honeymoon at the Plaza Hotel, conservative young lawyer Paul Bratter (Robert Redford) and his vivacious wife Corie (Jane Fonda) settle into domesticity in a fifth-floor walkup apartment building in New York, filled to the rafters with veritable kooks! Corie's mother Mrs Banks (Mildred Natwick) finds herself being wooed by worldly neighbour Mr Velasco (Charles Boyer) , whilst Paul and Corie slowly adapt themselves (hilariously) to married life!

Robert Redford amiably recreates his Broadway role of Paul and Jane Fonda is just about perfect as Corie. Mildred Natwick is a hoot as Mrs Banks (and adds a lot of depth and drama to her comedy). Charles Boyer, in one of his last films, gives Velasco the flash and eccentricities the role requires. Neal Hefti composed what has become one of the most loved and admired film-scores of the 60s.

Sensational film version of the Broadway hit, which opened in 1963, originally starred Robert Redford and Elizabeth Ashley, and ran for over 1,500 performances.
