Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Middle of the Night

A genuine surprise. Who would have paired Kim Novak with Fredric March? It works. She was so insecure but so touching and so gorgeous and he was a great actor with tremendous sensitivity. Chayefsky's dialogue is not as overdone as usual. I was completely won over. I think it is a much better movie than "Marty."
