"Cactus Flower" is a delightful comedy sparked by crazy, mixed-up situations and a kooky, Academy Award®-winning debut performance from Goldie Hawn (Best Actress in a Supporting Role). Walter Matthau also stars as Julian Winston, an easygoing bachelor dentist whose delicately balanced scheme crumbles under some unexpected circumstances. Winston is stringing along his dizzy blonde mistress, Toni (Hawn), by telling her that he has a wife and children. But when he learns that she has tried to commit suicide over him, he promises to marry her. Toni, refusing to be a homewrecker, insists on first meeting Winston’s wife, so he convinces Stephanie (Ingrid Bergman) - his starched and no-nonsense nurse - to pose as his wife. Winston’s scheme leads to unforeseen twists and surprises for everyone.
