5.0 out of 5 stars Wilder's Parisian souffle July 18, 2004
Format:DVD
With two of Hollywood's most glamorous stars, and (despite the silly plot) a sharp and witty script, this film is an evergreen, and one I never tire of watching.
Audrey Hepburn is enchanting as the spunky "Thin Girl", a cello student who falls in love with a millionaire playboy bachelor, played with grace and charm (and quite a bit of humor) by Gary Cooper. Hepburn was 28 at the time, and looked younger, Cooper was 56, and looked perhaps older, but despite the age difference, their chemistry together sparkles and sizzles.
The romantic cat and mouse game played by Hepburn to intrigue and win Cooper's heart is all very innocent and sweet, and I always shed a few tears at the magical ending.
Maurice Chevalier as Hepburn's father, a private detective specializing in matters of love and deception is fabulous, and gets most of the funny lines, and John McGiver, as one of Chevalier's jealous husband clients, is also very amusing.
The b & w cinematography by William Mellor is exceptional, and how the camera loves Audrey, looking exquisite in an array of beautiful gowns. There is also a quartet called "The Gypsies", who serenade the lovers throughout the film with some terrific czardas, and the melodic song "Fascination".
Light, frothy, and thoroughly enjoyable, this is one of Billy Wilder's most delightful films, and it's a treasure for Hepburn and Cooper fans.
Total running time is 130 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gary Cooper too old? Blasphemy! November 6, 2002
Format:DVD
The common criticism of this delightful film is that Gary Cooper, one of the icons of Hollywood, was "too old" to play the lead against the youthful Audrey Hepburn. This is, quite frankly, ludicrous and almost laughable. Though Coop was 56 when the movie was filmed, he was still incredibly handsome, well-preserved, thin and as sexy as he had been in his prime. There isn't a single moment where the viewer would doubt that this man wasn't utterly believable in the role or womanizer and seducer extraodinaire. Audrey Hepburn would have been a fool to turn her nose up at this choice male animal, even if he was 30 years her senior.
Coop and Hepburn's scenes together are all marvelous, especially the famous film-ending train scene, this one still makes one's toes curl, even after 20+ viewings over the years. Maurice Chevalier is also charming in his role as Audrey's father. The music, script and stellar direction by Billy Wilder make this an essential movie to watch, to own, and to treasure.

Turner Classic Movies' classic movie series continues with this two-disc set showcasing four beloved films with romantic themes. Intriguingly, while two movies have the requisite happy ending, the other two close with former lovers resigned to the wisdom gained from relationships that could not endure. All four have been presented in pristine print condition.

Splendor in the Grass (****1/2): Director Elia Kazan was able to extract a searing performance from Natalie Wood in this classic 1961 melodrama about youthful sexual repression in rural 1920's Kansas. She has never been more affecting then she is here as Deanie Loomis, the local butcher's daughter deeply in love with Bud Stamper, the son of an oil scion and the high school football hero. They are the senior sweethearts everyone expects to marry, but both have to battle constantly with their sexual longing and their grasping parents.

While the whole film is beautifully executed thanks to Kazan's sure hand and William Inge's screenplay (his first directly for the screen), it's the last fifteen minutes that really resonate with the characters expressing their emotions with a minimum of dialogue. At her most youthfully beautiful, Wood is wondrous as she moves fluidly from innocently infatuated to obsessive to resigned. As the none-too-bright Bud, Warren Beatty is charismatic in his film debut and makes Deanie's powerful fixation completely understandable. The classic Wordsworth poem from which the film's title is derived makes a fitting coda for this movie, and I still feel the intractable sense of longing in the two lead characters every time I see this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascination is in the air! November 18, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this movie lots! Despite the difference of age between Audrey Hepburn and Gary Cooper I think they made a real cute couple. Audrey is perfect, how can you not love her? Of all her films, this is one of my favorites, it's funny and yet very romantic. And Maurice Chevalier is great as Audrey's beloved father. So, if you're a Audrey Hepburn fan and also a hopeless romantic -I'd rather say hopeful, though -, you'll love this movie. Let's put it this way: if you don't have it, buy it now! You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Audrey Hepburn fan July 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Billy Wilder have done it again. This romantic comedy is so enchanting and playful that no one could ever leave their seats until the movie finishes. The long-time partnership of Billy Wilder and Audrey Hepburn has always been magnificent. Billy knows what kind of movie Audrey would fit in. Still young enough to play the youthful Arianne, Love in the Afternoon is set in the enchacting city of Paris, where romance is found everywhere as Maurice Chevalier narates in the beginning of the film. This is one movie that is impossible to remake without the cinematic charisma of the two lead actors, Audrey Hepburn and Gary Cooper, and the directorial genius of Billy Wilder. They are simply irreplaceable.
