Slovenski opis filma:

Ameriški film, 1962 Režija: Blake Edwards Scenarij: J.P. Miller V glavnih vlogah: Jack Lemmon, Lee Remick, Charles Bickford Problemska drama Blakea Edwardsa (Pink Panter, Zabava) je nosila promocijski slogan: »Na nenavaden način je to ljubezenska zgodba.« Joe Clay je razmeroma uspešen piarovec, ki rad odhaja v življenje in uživa alkoholne pijače. To je pravzaprav del njegove službe, saj mora pogosto zabavati stranke. V službi spozna Kirsten Arnasen, simpatično dekle z nedolžnim pogledom na svet. Kirsten in Joe se kmalu poročita in dobita hčer. Družina je srečna, a le na prvi pogled. Joe ženo navadi na alkohol in nekega dne uzre, da je ta povsem zagospodaril nad njunim življenjem. Poskuša jo prepričati, naj se mu pridruži na odvajanju. A Kirsten vztraja, da lahko alkoholizem premaga brez pomoči zunanjih instanc. Ko Kirsten izgine za nekaj dni, jo Joe zlomljeno najde v bližnjem motelu. Čeprav je boleče, si mora priznati, da je pot iz odvisnosti v nekaterih primerih nemogoča.

Originalni opis filma:

Joe Clay is a top-notch public relations man. Anything a client wants Joe can arrange for them, whether it be dancing girls or an article in a prominent magazine. Part of the job however is drinking and Joe's ability to consume alcohol seems boundless. When he meets the very pretty Kirsten Arnasen, she prefers chocolate to alcohol but Joe has a solution to that in the form of a Brandy Alexander (made up of brandy and creme de cocoa). They eventually marry but their love is insufficient to prevent them from the downward spiral that alcohol brings to them. They try desperately to break the habit but continually relapse until only one of them manages to break free.
