Sunday In New York, The Movie

A favorite of mine, with Mel Torme singing a a bonus
Jane Fonda is delightfully daffy as the uneasy doll who keeps a bevy of baffled males on edge for an entire Sunday In New York

Sunday in New York (1963) is a American comedy film directed by Peter Tewksbury and starring Cliff Robertson, Jane Fonda, and Rod Taylor. The screenplay by Norman Krasna was adapted from his play which had been produced on Broadway the previous year. It was one of Fonda's earliest films, and she was called "the loveliest and most gifted of all our new young actresses" by Newsday. The soundtrack score was composed and performed by Peter Nero.
Eileen Tyler (Fonda) is twenty-two years old and is suffering from her breakup with Russ (Robert Culp). She comes to New York City to visit her brother Adam (Robertson), who is an airline pilot. Eileen confides to her brother that she thinks she may be the only 22-year-old virgin left in the world. Adam assures her that sex is not what all men look for and insists he hasn't slept around. Of course, Adam is lying and is in hot pursuit of a tryst with his occasional girlfriend Mona. However, Adam's date with Mona has a series of job related interruptions. Meanwhile, Eileen decides to see if she can have some fun for herself in New York, and seems to find the perfect candidate in Mike (Taylor), a man she meets on the bus. But things get complicated when Russ pops in with a proposal and a mistaken assumption.
