Boys Night Out is one of my favorite 1960's battle of sexes comedies . Its a Doris Day Rock Hudson film without Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Kim Novak plays the beautiful blonde bombshell who takes up residence in an apartment to be the companion to the four men who share this New York apartment. The men are James Garner,( who also made several battle of sexes films with Doris Day), Tony Randall (also present in several of Doris Days films), Howard Duff, and Howie Morris. The movie is written with both sophistication and slapstick humor. James Garner's mother is played by the always delighful Jessie Royce Landis. Rounding out the cast are the wives Janet Blair, Patty Page, and Janice Rule. There is never any sex in the film. Kim Hunter's character is in reality a grad student writing on human sexuality using the men for her subject in her thesis. And the ending with the entire cast meeting up in the apartment at the same time is both slapstick and hysterical. Watch for a brief cameo by Zsa Zsa Gabor in the last few minutes of the film.
