The Statue ★ 1971 (R)
Famed sculptress unveils a nude rendering of her Nobel Prize-winning husband. Much hilarity in the British vein is meant to ensue, but doesn't. Niven is OK, but this empty, plotless farce should have been much shorter. 84m/C VHS . GB David Niven, Virna Lisi, Robert Vaughn, Ann Bell, John Cleese; D: Rod Amateau.
