At Long Last Love is a romantic musical film from 1975 directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Starring Burt Reynolds as Michael Oliver Pritchard III, Cybill Shepherd as Brooke Carter, and Madeline Kahn as Elizabeth, the movie is set in the 1930s and follows the romantic relationships between the three characters. The film opens with a lively music and dance number in which each of the three leads is introduced. Michael is a wealthy playboy who is always looking for new romantic conquests. Brooke is a fashion designer who is married to a wealthy businessman Dan (John Hillerman) but finds herself becoming attracted to Michael. Elizabeth is an actress who is in love with Michael and has a history with Brooke.

The plot of the film revolves around the tangled romantic relationships between the characters. Michael pursues Brooke, but she is conflicted about her feelings and can't seem to decide between him and her husband Dan. Meanwhile, Elizabeth is jealous of Brooke's relationship with Michael and schemes to come between them.

Throughout the film, the characters break out into song and dance numbers with classic tunes from the 1930s. Reynolds, Shepherd, and Kahn all have strong singing voices and are able to handle the musical numbers with ease.

One standout musical number is "Well, Did You Evah!" a duet between Reynolds and Sinatra. The song is performed in a bar and features the two actors trading insults and jokes while sipping on cocktails. The number is playful and fun and showcases Reynolds' comedic talents.

Another memorable musical number is "You're The Top" performed by Shepherd and Reynolds. The two characters flirt and banter with each other while singing the famous Cole Porter tune. The chemistry between Shepherd and Reynolds is palpable and makes the scene enjoyable to watch.

The film also features several comedic moments. Madeline Kahn is particularly hilarious as Elizabeth, a woman who is desperate for Michael's affections but always seems to end up embarrassing herself in the process. Kahn has a knack for physical comedy and delivers her lines with perfect comedic timing.

Overall, At Long Last Love is an enjoyable romantic musical film that will appeal to fans of old Hollywood classics. The film's charm comes from the strong performances of the lead actors, the lively musical numbers, and the nostalgic 1930s setting. While it may not be as well-known as other classic musicals, At Long Last Love is definitely worth a watch for fans of the genre.
