Congregation Etz Chaim of DuPage County

Life Tree Cinema: Cactus Flower

Starring Walter Matthau, Goldie Hawn (and Ingrid Bergman), Cactus Flower is a comedy about a middle-aged dentist, his nurse, and his 21-year-old mistress. He claims he's married, because he doesn't want to get involved, but he DOES get involved and can't figure out how to confess his deception. He persuades the nurse to pretend to be his wife, but then the girl becomes sympathetic to the poor, abandoned wife. According to Roger Ebert, the chemistry works and the audience laughs under their breath in order not to miss the lines.
