Cactus Flower is a delightful comedy sparked by crazy, mixed-up situations and a kooky, Academy Award-winning debut performance from Goldie Hawn (Best Actress in a Supporting Role). Walter Matthau also stars as Julian Winston, an easygoing bachelor dentist whose delicately balanced scheme crumblesunder some unexpected circumstances. Winston is stringing along his dizzy blonde mistress Toni (Hawn), by telling her that he has a wife and children. But when he learns that she has tried to commit suicide over him, he promises to marry her. Toni, refusing to be a home wrecker, insists on first meeting Winston's wife, so he convinces Stephanie (Ingrid Bergman) - his starched and no-nonsense nurse - to pose as his wife. Winston's scheme leads to unforeseen twists and surprises for everyone.
Goldie Hawn was great in this movie. Walter M & Ingrid B are super actors. Film was entertaining
Great Cast -Great Lines
This film is a true classic. The great Ingrid Bergman gave an Oscar-worthy performance (Goldie Hawn did too -and she actually won), and her chemistry with Walter Matthau makes this a moving love story as well as a comedy. One of the rare times when the film was better than the play it was based on. If they still made 'em like this one I'd be spending my $10 at the local cineplex instead of on iTunes.
This is a cute movie, and I believe it's Goldie Hawn's first movie. A great cast, great script and great lines.
