Chicago Reader review:
All right, so it starred Julie Andrews and Omar Sharif. You wanna make something of it? Blake Edwards’s film was still one of the few examples of a genuinely expressive visual style to come along this year, an uncompromised love story with some remarkable spiritual overtones. Posterity, not the New Yorker, has the last word.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
