Producer/director Melvin Frank struck box-office gold when he teamed George Segal with Glenda Jackson in A TOUCH OF CLASS. Segal plays married insurance executive Steve Blackburn, who can't seem to avoid bumping into divorced fashion designer Vicki Allessio (Glenda Jackson) wherever he goes. Finally bowing to the inevitable, Steve and Vicki fall in love. He suggests a romantic rendezvous in Spain...but nothing, absolutely nothing, goes as planned. A comedy of errors ending on an unexpected note of pathos, A TOUCH OF CLASS was nominated for four Academy Awards, and earned Glenda Jackson a Best Actress Oscar.
