Vintage Trailer of the Day: What’s New Pussycat? (1965)

Right in between Dr. Strangelove and Casino Royale, Peter Sellers played a crazed doctor named Fritz Fassbender for a little flick called What’s New Pussycat?, and the result was a comedy about as offbeat as they get.

The Woody Allen-scripted movie saw Sellers teaming with Peter O’Toole to explore the randomness and destruction of romance. O’Toole plays a wealthy cad who refuses to lead the married life with the woman he loves, opting instead for tons of casual sex. Burdened by the issue, he seeks the guidance of the crazed Fassbender who has more than a few romance problems himself.

Some of it makes sense, most of it doesn’t, and the trailer captures that hilarious spirit perfectly.
