On November thirteenth Felix Unger was asked to
remove himself from his place of residence. That
request came from his wife. Deep down he knew
she was right. But he also knew that someday he
would return to her. With no where else to go, he
appeared at the home of his childhood friend, Oscar
Madison. Sometime earlier, Madison's wife had
thrown him out, requesting that he never return.
Can two divorced men share an apartment
without driving each other crazy?
If comedy thrives on contrasts, The Odd Couple
offered a perfect situation. Felix was a prim,
fastidious photographer, a compulsive cleaner;
Oscar was a gruff, sloppy sportswriter for the
fictional New York Herald, to whom a floor was a
place to toss things. The conflicts were obvious
and endless, as each upset the other's way of life.
Frequently seen were Oscar's poker partners,
notably Murray the cop, Speed the
compulsive gambler, and meek Vinnie.
