Goodbye Charlie

In his day, George Axelrod was one of the most popular screenwriters in Hollywood. He was best known for The Seven Year Itch and his Academy Award-winning film version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but his most well-written comedy might be Goodbye Charlie, the gender-bending tale of a womanizer who gets murdered and is reincarnated in a female body. Ever the dastardly devil, Charlie sets about blackmailing his — her? — former lovers, while trying to keep chasing skirts and adjust to his new womanly body.
