2 quirky Manhattanites crash into each other cute at an ophthalmologist’s office. Peter is a grouchy cartoonist/author whose vision is failing, divorced mother Theresa is also reluctant to plunge into a relationship right now. It’s not love at first sight – both have their eyes dilated, plus Peter constantly lampoons women in his work, which book seller Theresa knows well. Loosely based on James Thurber’s drawings “The War Between Men & Women,” and Thurber’s life, the film features animated sequences. The War Between Men and Women (also released as “In Love and War”), the 1972 Melville Shavelson battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy (“Man cannot live by love alone… Woman won’t let him!”; “A very special and wonderful comedy!”; “Written by Melville Shavelson and Danny Arnold”; “Their affair ended in disaster. They got married!”; “Suggested by the writing and drawings of James Thurber”) starring Jack Lemmon, Barbara Harris, Jason Robards, Dr. Joyce Brothers, and Herb Edelman
