From director Norman Jewison (The Thomas Crown Affair, Rollerball) comes the oh-so-Sixties comedy The Art of Love (1965) starring James Garner (Support Your Local Sheriff), Dick Van Dyke (Mary Poppins), Elke Sommer (Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number), Angie Dickinson (Dressed to Kill), Ethel Merman (It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World) and Carl Reiner (Ocean’s Eleven).

Having failed to establish himself as a painter in Paris, Paul Sloane (Van Dyke) decides to return home to his wealthy girlfriend, Laurie Gibson (Dickinson). His roommate, Casey Barnett (Garner), argues that Paul should fake his own suicide, which will make his paintings much more popular. With Paul presumably dead, demand for his work soars. When Casey grows wealthy selling it off and begins courting Laurie, an angry Paul frames his deceitful friend for his murder.

Shot in Technicolor by the great Russell Metty (The Stranger) with a screenplay by co-star Reiner, The Art of Love is based on a story by Richard Alan Simmons (Juggernaut) and William Sackheim (First Blood).
