The Odd Couple

The Odd Couple

The story of divorced friends Felix Unger and Oscar Madison has entertained audiences in three different mediums: first as a stage play, then a movie, and eventually as a TV series. When Felix's (Tony Randall) wife divorces him, longtime friend Oscar (Jack Klugman) offers to let him move in. Being recently divorced himself, sportswriter Oscar understands his friend's situation. However, Oscar enjoys his new found freedom from ex-wife Blanche (Brett Somers-Klugman) while Felix, a photographer at a portrait studio, spends time regretting the divorce and tries to win his ex-wife Gloria (Janis Hansen) back. Uptight Felix can't understand how Oscar can live as messily as he does while slovenly Oscar cannot understand the healthy and compulsively neat habits of his roommate.
