Storyline

Forty year old Norwegian-American divorcée Ann Stanley owns her own Manhattan based real estate agency specializing in upscale Manhattan apartments. She lives with her seventeen year old daughter Trina Stanley, and her mother, Maud Ericson, who acts more the teenager than Trina. Largely because of her uptight and regimented attitude, Ann has had no love in her life since divorcing her ex-husband, character actor Billy Boylan, an irresponsible man who she still loves as a friend and who she sees whenever he is in town between acting jobs and whenever he needs money from her. Ann's uptight attitude seems to have softened slightly ever since returning from a trip to Greece with Maud. What she has not told anyone is that her softened attitude is from a romantic one night only liaison with a young American man she met by happenstance by an out of the way Greek beach, he who tried to get her to be more carefree, if only for that one night. Purely by coincidence, she meets that man again in ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

[Mrs. Adams is looking at the apartment listings]
Mrs. Adams: This one here that's not too bad. 1080 Park Avenue. What's the cross street?
Margie Margolin: 88th Street.
Mrs. Adams: Oh no, that's too far uptown. Couldn't you give me the same apartment in the 60's?
Margie Margolin: No. It's attached to the building.

The second film directed by Milton Katselas.. he only directed six! and they were all off-beat thangs... i loved Butterflies are Free; that one had Goldie Hawn, and ALSO had Edward Albert. 40 Carats is a May-December story, with Ann (Liv Ullmann) having a quick romance with Peter (Edward Albert) in Greece. They meet again later, back in the states, but things are different, more proper. Keep an eye out for Nancy Walker (Rhoda's mom) and Natalie Schafer (Lovey Howell!) and of course, Gene Kelly with a mustache. Interesting cast. The story itself is silly and all over the place, but its fun to see the cast in this oddball work. Edward Albert died young at 55, only a year after his dad, the OTHER Eddie Albert. kind of fun. Liv Ullmann waaaaya over-acts. just go with it. Showing on the Cinémoi channel.
