This film was Peter Bogdanovich's homage to musical comedies of the 1930s. A millionaire named Michael Oliver Pritchard III and a singer named Kitty O'Kelly meet and fall in love. Meanwhile, an indigent woman named Brooke Carter and an Italian gambler named Johnny Spanish meet and fall in love. All four people meet each other and become friends (actually, Kitty and Brooke had been friends since high-school), and soon, Brooke's crude, fun-loving maid Elizabeth falls in love with Michael's valet Rodney James. Later on, Michael and Brooke fall in love, and Kitty and Johnny decide to follow them around. In order to make Brooke and Michael jealous, they try to look like they are falling in love as well. Eventually, Michael and Johnny get into a fight but then immediately make up. Soon, Brooke and Kitty make up. The two couples pair off successfully and they live happily ever after.Written by
Only one song in this movie is not a Cole Porter song. Cole Porter wrote the lyrics to "Poor Young Millionaire" but never composed the song. Bogdanovich had the musical director compose music for the lyric in a Porter-esque style. See more »
The Camera begins on a silver music box on which rest bas-reliefs of the 4 principals, they dance to a song and then the camera pans around Kitty Kelly's sumptuous black-and white art deco penthouse. See more »
Swedish cinema version had following songs deleted/shortened: "From Alpha to Omega" and "I love Him" was removed; "Which", "At Long Last Love", "Let's Misbehave" and "Just One of Those things" were shortened. See more »
At Long Last Love may be far from a great musical, but it stars the great Madeline Kahn and that is the reason to give this film a chance. It was a big flop in 1975. It is clumsily filmed in some ways. Burt Reynolds and Cybil Shepherd are no singers, but are not all that bad either. Dulio Del Prete is annoying though. JOhn Hillerman, Eileen Brennan and Mildred Natwick are all fun to watch. Peter Bogdanvich directed this homage to the musicals of the 1930's. 16 Cole Porter songs are used in it. I do enjoy the whole cast singing Friendship in the limo. The art deco set is beautiful looking and the technicolor is as well. The cast sang these songs live on film and that was the big mistake. 120 minutes of singing and dancing. The comedy is funny at times but a little dated. But as I said its great to see a movie with Madeline Kahn singing and dancing.
