In Ten, written and directed by Blake Edwards, a composer (Dudley Moore) going through a midlife crisis meets a fantasy girl (Bo Derek at her most seductive), the perfect 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. But when it comes to real relationships, he realizes he's much better off with a mature woman like Julie Andrews.

As a result of this movie, Bo Derek set the fashion for hairstyles in 1980, the first time an actress had done so since Debbie Reynolds' pigtails in the 1950s.

The film was nominated for two Oscars: Best Song, “It's Easy to Say,” with music by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Robert Wells, and
Original Score by Mancini.

The winners in those categories were David Shire and Norman Gimbel for “It Goes Like It Goes,” from Norma Rae, and Georges Delerue, who scored A Little Romance.
