One of the few comedies to be Oscar-nominated in the 1970s, this British film about adulterous affair benefits from the strong chemistry between George Segal and Glenda Jackson, who won a second Best Actress for her part.

Charming, if slight, star comedy.

Audience Reviews for A Touch of Class

Bittersweet comedy helped immeasurably by the chemistry of the stars and the skill of their performances. Glenda is brash and delicate in equal measure, George bombastic but good natured. While it shows the pitfalls of infidelity it doesn't judge its characters for their choices and actually presents all the relationships, including Glenda's gay assistant's, evenhandedly rather surprising for the 70's.

A funny bit of romping between George Segal and Glenda Jackson. It makes a bit too much light of adultery but ultimately we can forgive it because of its charm.
