Caprice

Universally derided (on this side of the Atlantic) at the time of its release (1967), this remarkably acid satire on the hideousness of American consumerism stars Doris Day as an industrial spy who inadvertently becomes mixed up in espionage, with Richard Harris. Its director, Frank Tashlin, has receded into memory as an underrated comic genius, whose talent for fragmenting most of our institutions, attitudes, and artifacts proved to be a prime influence on Jean-Luc Godard and Jerry Lewis (who was funny only in Tashlin's films).
