The Sunshine Boys (1975)
The Sunshine Boys is a 1975 American comedy film directed by Herbert Ross and starring Walter Matthau and George Burns. The film follows the story of two aging vaudeville performers, Al Lewis (Matthau) and Willie Clark (Burns), who reunite after 11 years of estrangement to perform a sketch on a television special.
The Sunshine Boys is a classic comedy, but it also contains some surprisingly risqué moments. The most memorable of these is the scene in which Al and Willie are rehearsing their vaudeville routine. During the rehearsal, Al makes a suggestive comment about a woman in the audience, which prompts Willie to respond with a suggestive gesture. The scene is played for laughs, but it is a reminder that the two men are still capable of being naughty.
Another memorable moment comes when Al and Willie are discussing their past. Willie reveals that he was once married to a woman named Lola, who was “the best lay in town”. Al is shocked by this revelation, but Willie insists that it’s true. This scene is a reminder that even elderly men can still appreciate the pleasures of the flesh.
Finally, there is the scene in which Al and Willie are discussing their future. Willie suggests that they should get married, and Al responds by saying that he’s “not that kind of guy”. This is a subtle reference to the fact that Al is not interested in a romantic relationship, but rather a platonic one.
Overall, The Sunshine Boys is a classic comedy, but it also contains some surprisingly risqué moments. These moments remind us that even elderly men can still appreciate the pleasures of the flesh, and that platonic relationships can be just as fulfilling as romantic ones.
In some old black and white stock footage we see some brief scenes of women in burlesque shows(mildly risque at best however).
George Burns briefly describes the physical attributes(breasts and butt) that a woman in the comedy sketch will need to have.
During a comedy sketch, there is a nurse that shows a lot of cleavage in a short dress. Every time she leaves the room she walks with a sexy wiggle in her rear. Walter Matthau(playing the doctor) ogles her a few times including putting his face close to her cleavage and butt and making some comical and suggestive remarks.
After a woman gives a man a medical injection in his buttocks(no nudity), he playfully acts as if he is going to pinch her rear end. Played for laughs.
