Funny how forgotten this is movie is. All of the players have either fallen out of favor or fallen off the earth. But at the time, it was a fun movie. And wasn't Chevy handsome? I'd forgotten that.
Written and Directed by Colin Higgins, FOUL PLAY debuted in 1978. A librarian and a police detective fall in love as they work together to solve a case involving all sorts of wacky characters. It begins when Hawn is persauded to get out more after her divorce and she chooses the wrong party to attend.
This was a sort of tribute to both screwball comedies and Alfred Hitchcock's pairing of a couple to solve a mystery. Dudley Moore was cast at the last minute and his performance led to his casting in TEN.
Both leads had a nice string of successful movies in the seventies and eighties and then age caught up with them, I guess.
