Movie Reviews

The Seven Faces of Shirley MacLaine
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 07/05/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you love Shirley MacLaine, chances are you'll really like WOMAN TIMES SEVEN (1967), one of her more offbeat movies, directed by Vittorio De Sica. In the movie she plays in seven different vignettes strung together by the themes of love and revenge.

While you might think this movie to be a re-tread of MacLaine's 1964 comedy "What a Way to Go!", WOMAN TIMES SEVEN is a more understated, European flavoured film experience. With the aid of several wigs, Ms MacLaine successfully shifts between seven different women. Each one tells a very special story.

My favourites include Edith, the housewife trying to compete with her author husband's (Lex Barker) exciting fictional heroines; Maria Teresa, who tries getting revenge on her cheating husband (Rossano Brazzi) by becoming a hooker; and Eve Minou, determined to outshine her arch-rival (Adrienne Corri) during a night at the opera! The final story is the most poignant one. In "Snow", Jeanne is followed by a handsome young stranger (MacLaine's "Gambit" costar Michael Caine), though he's actually a private detective employed by Jeanne's husband...and has also fallen in love with her.

There's equal moments of hilarity and heartache in these stories of seven different shades of womanhood, and you're bound to find your own personal favourites within the mix. The musical score by Riz Ortolani is absolutely gorgeous; and the costumes created by Marcel Escoffier represent the 1960's at it's glamorous--and outlandish--best.

Lionsgate/StudioCanal will be releasing this often-requested title on September 16. Fans of Shirley MacLaine will adore seeing it again, but I hope casual viwers will also give it a spin. Highly-recommended."
Funny and Touching

"A collection of 7 short stories about 7 totally different female characters. Supporting cast is superb, Alan Arkin, Peter Sellers, Micheal Caine, Rosanno Bratzi, etc.Maclaine does a wonderful job of capturing the differences amoung woman, along with making the audience feel empathy for all of her character's situations. Lots of marvelous scenes in this movie. The rich socialite dress fiasco and the italian philanderer are my favorites."
Don`t call me Shirley (just kidding)

"WELL, It`s about time! Wonderful 60s comedy film. Now if only "John Goldfarb Please Come Home" will only see the light of day. PLEASE!"
Complete Dialogue Please

(3 out of 5 stars)

"I've enjoyed this movie for years, seeing it in various incarnations, either on television (cut and edited depending on society's mores at the time) and also on video (where it was released years ago). The seven stories are entertaining and some do really touch you. However, I did noticed that some of the original dialogue has been cut, particularly during the Eve segment. I guess when they re-released this on DVD, the studio felt that the audience of 2008 couldn't handle Eve using the "B word" over the telephone to her fashion rival or telling her husband that she doesn't go to be with frightened yellow chickens. True, in the scheme of the universe, the cutting of a word here or there is inconsiquential, but when one has seen this film so many times, its kind of like hitting a speed bump."
