Directed by: Charles Crichton
Starring: John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline


Jamie Lee Curtis plays Wanda, an ambitious con artist who uses her sexual wiles to obtain a fortune in jewels stolen by her gangster lover Tom Georgeson. To get them, she philanders with one of his dumber cronies played by Kevin Kline and seduces his attorney (John Cleese). Mix in some double-crosses, the murder of an old woman and her dogs at the hands of a stuttering K-K-Ken and you have yourself a whole lot of hilarity. Who gets the jewels? Who gets the fish? Who gets Wanda? Listen to the podcast to find out.
