The Marriage of a Young Stockbroker
Lawrence Turman’s film stands alongside Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice, Blume in Love and other films of the late 60’s/early 70’s that found middle class Americans fed up and frustrated in their search for marital bliss. Carrying on in that tradition, Stockbroker zeroes in on one man’s attempt to patch up his empty union through the fine art of voyeurism. Richard Benjamin plays the nebbish with the wandering eye and Joanna Shimkus is his beleaguered wife.
