Hanky Panky is a 1982 comedy film directed by Sidney Poitier, and starring Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner. Wilder and Radner met during filming and later married.[1]

Plot[edit]

An architect (Wilder) accidentally gets caught up in a web of intrigue and murder when he ends up on the run on false murder charges. Kate (Gilda) is a woman out to find her brother's killer. The two team up, but not before first thinking the other is the killer. The duo end up on a wild cross-country ride from New York City to the Grand Canyon

Main cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Vincent Canby, writing in The New York Times, gave the film a mixed review, saying it "is apt to leave you far less exhilarated than exhausted."[2]
