verbisque decoris obvolvas vitium?
Can such vice be covered up with virtuous words?

Deathtrap (1982)
starring Michael Caine Christopher Reeve and the lovely Ms Dyan Cannon

This is a well written screenplay with clever if biting wit and comment along the way.
I love the performance of dear Dyan Cannon mainly and it remains the only appeal of the movie
for me personally. As such much of the play is in fact empty of this feeling given her early exit
as scripted.

The moral of the story is that if you cant do a gal justice - don't bother trying to keep her in bed with
you in whatever are your exploits otherwise.
