Salt and Pepper
About Salt and Pepper
This 1968 film is just one in an ignoble line of un-hip hipster comedies of the late 60’s and early 70’s that included such clueless farragoes as Otto Preminger’s Skidoo and Lee Katzin’s The Phynx. Past-their-prime lotharios Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford star as club owners who back into a murder mystery and set to work solving the case. The movie is notable as director Richard Donner’s sophomore effort though it would be almost a decade before his career took off with The Omen. There was a sequel directed by Jerry Lewis (!). The saving grace of both films is that they featured poster art from Jack Davis.
