Cactus Flower is a 1969 romantic comedy that won Goldie Hawn an Academy Award. The film follows Dr. Julian Winston (Walter Matthau), a successful Manhattan dentist, who makes the most of the swinging sixties by telling a long line of women that he is already married. During this promiscuous time, he manages to enjoy plenty of women as well as his bachelorhood. Then, his current girlfriend, Toni Simmons (Goldie Hawn), tries to kill herself because of their affair. The guilt-ridden dentist promises to marry her, but Toni will not say yes until she meets his first wife. Along with his friend, Harvey Greenfield (Jack Weston), Julian comes up with a plan to have his longtime nurse, Stephanie (Ingrid Bergman) pose as his wife, with Harvey playing her lover. Stephanie plays the role perfectly, in part because she has harbored a secret crush on her boss for years, and the evening will provide plenty of surprises for all involved.
