Strangers When We Meet synopsis

Architect Larry Coe (Kirk Douglas) yearns to create adventurous designs, but his pragmatic wife, Eve (Barbara Rush), is determined to make her husband focus on more marketable, straightforward work. Maggie Gault (Kim Novak), a neighbor of the Coe family who is trapped in a loveless marriage, believes in Larry's creative impulses, and the pair eventually strike up a love affair. However, they're interrupted by the nosy, lecherous Felix (Walter Matthau), who has eyes for Eve.
