Former radio singer Kay (JUNE ALLYSON) learns from her gossipy friends that her husband, Steve (LESLIE NIELSEN), has had an affair with chorus girl Crystal (JOAN COLLINS). Devastated, Kay tries to ignore the information, but when Crystal performs one of her musical numbers at a charity benefit, she breaks down and goes to Reno to file for divorce. However, when she hears that gold-digging Crystal is making Steve unhappy, Kay resolves to get her husband back.



The only feature is the Theatrical Trailer (3:43).


VIDEO – 5/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

The Opposite Sex is presented in its original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and has been given a new 1080p high-definition transfer through the Warner Archive Collection. This is a wonderfully beautiful looking picture, detail is sharp throughout and colors are ever so vibrant since this is a lively comedic musical. The picture also appears clean, free of any major instances of dust marks, scratches or other issues with the film elements.

The movie includes a nice sounding DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo track which is utilized well for the musical numbers as well as producing clean and clear dialogue levels. Not entirely amazing, however as these older films go, a fine upgrade over previous releases.
