Peter Bogdanovich's attempt to direct a homage to the great musicals of the 1930s is now remembered as one of the embarrassments of the 1970s. The film's thin plot, standard for the genre, centers on the romantic entanglements and misunderstandings among six stock characters: the bored playboy (Burt Reynolds), his never-ruffled valet (John Hillerman), the debutante (Cybill Shepherd), the Broadway diva (Madeline Kahn), her gambler boyfriend (Duilio Del Prete), and her maid (Eileen Brennan).

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
This Cole Porter coloring book, mounted with great expense and no taste, is one of those grand catastrophes that make audiences either hoot in derisive surprise or look away in embarrassment.
It's an indulgent movie -- Peter and Cybill having a lark with their friends -- but it's also a neat parody of '30s musicals.
The movie's no masterpiece, but I can't account for the viciousness of some of the critical attacks against it.
Looked at today, without the baggage of 1975, At Long Last Love is much more artistically successful than is generally allowed.
It's not just the acting. There's no chemistry, and very few Cole Porter songs are performed in such a way that you'd guess would make the old lyricist happy. 'You're the Top'? Not with this group doing the singing.
This foolish attempt at re-creating the lush musicals of the 1930s offers fabulous art deco sets, memorable Cole Porter songs, and slick production values, yet it goes down like a stricken elephant.
But as they say, when all you have to recommend in your musical is a hairy chest, you're in trouble.
