Before she became a great star and a two-time Academy Award winner, Jane Fonda was a screen ingénue who sent a string of bubblyromantic comedies soaring, including this charmer from the prolific pen of Norman Krasna (Bachelor Mother, The Devil and Miss Jones). Fonda portrays a virginal miss blessed with long limbs and a knockout profile who runs off from her fiancé (Robert Culp) to the swingin' pad of her brother (Cliff Robertson) and then into the arms of a guy she meets on the 5th Avenue bus (Rod Taylor)—all the while trying to decide if she'll say "yes" before she says "I do." Filmed on location, Sunday in New York is a fun,sophisticated romp set to a hip Peter Nero score that features Mel Torme singing the title tune. Krasna adapted his hit Broadway sex farce for the screen under the direction of Peter Tewksbury.
