In this biting comedy satirizing Hollywood cynicism from writer-director Blake Edwards, Felix Farmer (Richard Mulligan) is a motion picture director whose career is on the skids. Having just completed a family musical that is sure to be a $30 million flop, Felix knows that his days are numbered and tries unsuccessfully to commit suicide. When he recovers, Felix suddenly has a brainstorm and hatches a scheme to buy the film back from his studio and lens new scenes that will turn it into a pornographic movie with big stars, a sure-fire box office winner. In order to pull it off, he'll need to convince his female lead and wife, Sally Miles (Julie Andrews, not coincidentally the director's real-life wife) to defy her wholesome, squeaky-clean public image by baring her breasts on film. S.O.B. (1981) was the final film of legendary actor William Holden.

Willaim Holden and Larry Hagman are within their characters. The story is based on Hollywood /film buisness and what does it take to have a hit. Climax to movie is Andrews asking "Did you come to see my BOOBIES". And they are beautiful!!!

i'm not sure how this movie was made but i think it was more personal to the star & director? so much was made of julie andrews taking off her top but it seemed almost repugnant the 1st time i saw this movie while highschool. i enjoy watching/collecting all her movies/music & flew to broadway to watch her final performance of victor/victoria but this movie didn't seem to do her any more justice than '10' so i assume it was an artistic statement rather than attempt to make a classic like sound of music or pink panther

Many known names can be seen in this film. Think that those who are in the inside of making movies would see more than just the usual movie goer. Some funny scenes toward the end, but overall strange. Not one I would recommend.

S.O.B. is one of my top ten all time favorite movies. Getting fed up with the way Hollywood conducts its business Edwards assembles an all star cast to show people how the ''delicate geniuses'' really are off screen and behind the screen. I fell in love with this movie shortly after it came out in 1981 thanks to the advent of cable tv. I watch it frequently and am amazed that the movie has such comic and dramatic depth. This also was William Holden's final performance. Holden died shortly after the release of S.O.B. Another reason to make this film part of your library Rick Schatz Louisville Kentucky
