Product Description

Yellow Rolls Royce, The

Featuring a star-studded international cast, gorgeous location photography, designer wardrobes, and a catchy Golden Globe Award-winning theme song--not to mention the glamorous automobile itself--this melodramatic travelogue follows a classic car as it changes the lives of three sets of owners. In the first episode, a British diplomat (Rex Harrison) buys the car for his French wife (Jeanne Moreau), who is dallying with her husband's colleague (Edmund Purdom) at a luxurious country estate. In the second episode, an Italian-American gangster (George C. Scott) tours his ancestral homeland with his gum-chewing blonde moll (Shirley MacLaine). When he returns to America to take care of business, his girl gets involved with a handsome Italian photographer (Alain Delon), aided by her chauffeur (Art Carney). And in the third episode, Omar Sharif teams with Ingrid Bergman in the story of a rich American widow who uses the Rolls to help a Yugoslavian freedom fighter.


They don't make 'em like this anymore. This sleek, smooth-running anthology film by the writer and director of The V.I.P.s is another extravagant vehicle for a dazzling international roster of stars, whose characters' lives are profoundly changed by the titular luxury automobile. Rex Harrison gets the show on the road as an English lord who purchases the car as an anniversary gift for his wife (Jeanne Moreau), who is having an affair with a younger member of his staff. "Twenty thousand and twenty-three miles later" in Italy, American gangster George C. Scott buys the car for wisecracking "fidanzata" Shirley MacLaine, who becomes involved with amoral tourist photographer Alain Delon while George is away on family business. Ingrid Bergman takes the wheel in the third story as an imperious American widow who becomes involved in Yugoslavia's fight against the Nazis when she is forced to smuggle patriot Omar Shariff across the border. The Yellow Rolls Royce deftly handles the twists and turns of melodrama, comedy and adventure, and this widescreen presentation does full justice to the gorgeous scenery. As one admirer of the car observes, it's kind of old fashioned, but it's got class. Fans of the handsome cast members will want to go along for the ride. --Donald Liebenson

At last, this superb film is on dvd. The three separate stories, linked by ownership of the titled Rolls Royce, star the most incredible cast, with standout performances by Rex Harrison as the husband deceived by a delicious Jeanne Moreau, mobster George C Scott and his bored floozie Shirley MacLaine who dallies with Alain Delon, and the final segment with Ingrid Bergman and Omar Sharif, where the Rolls is used for an unexpected purpose. The music and cinematography add to the magic of this film, which should not be missed.

Few films embody the 60's trend in Hollywood for International Productions that could play in any European Market as well as the good old USofA more than this movie. It is an enchanting concept. The longevity and varied changing ownership of a hand tooled masterpiece of classic automotive technology. Oh....and the star power isn't too bad either. The cast has been mentioned by others. But the Rolls holds its own against the biggest of them and comes out the true central character it was meant to be. Quite an accomplishment with no dialogue. There is quite a bit of interaction with the actors themselves, yet the car never lets itself be upstaged. A finely tuned performance all the way. Today's cars should enroll in the Yellow Rolls Royce's acting class about class acting through every social strata in a feature film. I shall never understand why the Academy wasn't driven to nominate it that year.
You really can't go wrong being the next owner of The Yellow Rolls Royce.

The Yellow Rolls Royce is a class act from the opening credits to the last shot. A pure example of the silver age of Hollywood doing what it does best. Great screenplay by Terrance Rattigan, gorgeous cinematography, engaging score, and impeccable direction by Anthony Asquith add up to a glittering fun and at times truly touching film experience.
Interestingly enough both Asquith and Rattigan teamed up before for a similar all star romp with the Taylor-Burton film "The VIPS" another story of intersecting lives brought together by a mode of transportation. In "The VIPS" it was airplanes and here in this charming film it is a resplendent canary yellow automobile.
To add to this heady cocktail the director has blended in a glittering all star cast of first rate talent from the early 1960's. This is a truly international roster of superstars each of which brings their unique talents and charms to bear on this film.
The story is in three acts encompassing events some years apart all involving the Rolls and how it came into and changed the lives of its various owners. In act one Rex Harrison is superb as being well, nothing less than Rex Harrison. The glamorous Jeanne Moreau shows her depth and considerable strengths as his wandering but loving wife. They sparkle and spark as an aristocratic English couple facing a major turning point in their marriage.
Act two really pops with comic genius flavored with a moving drama as Gangster George C. Scott takes his wisecracking Moll, Shirley MacLaine on a tour of Italy. Scott is revelatory in his roll and is complemented by Art Carney as his loyal and street wise right hand man. MacLaine channels a sharp, witty comic performance that stands with her best of the period.

I have waited decades to own this movie and finally it is available on DVD.

I rate it 4 stars because in all honesty, 5 stars implies "as good as it gets" and while its wonderful, its obviously not a Citizen Kane or a Bicycle Thief, but that having been said, it was an absolute amust for my collection.

The movie takes you on a tour of europe, from the life of a British Aristocrat, to the italian vacation of an american gangster, to the mountains of WWII era yugoslavia, and its a really wonderful journey. Rex Harrison is simply superb, and british director Asquith's familiarity with Britain and the English aristocracy of the time and its ways, makes the British portion of the movie the most detailed, accurate and authentic, and will entertain anglophiles, but George C Scott, Shirley Maclain, and Ingrid Bergman carry off the rest of it to perfection. They, helped along by the wonderful camera work, the locations and the sensitive story line, really make make for pleasurable diverting entertainment.

I wish it had been released as a Blu-ray, but for now I am just happy that they finally released this disc.

Fans of Rex Harrison must see this! For everyone else, its a wonderful, lighthearted adventure movie that looks at early 20th century europe with actors who are a real pleasure to watch.

I was 13 when this movie was first released. I was very excited at the time, it seemed so sophisticated. Now after many years, it was a nice experience to see the film on DVD. Film making has changed dramatically and this film is a great example of the big films of the early 1960s which were filled to overflowing with big name stars in a highly accessible and understandable plot and script. Today the film may seem formulaic, predictable, and somewhat shallow - but it is still highly entertaining. The first part of this tri-part film stars Rex Harrison and Jeanne Moreau as Lord and Lady Frinton. Lord Frinton seems to have missed all the cues that his wife was no longer interested in him and had found a younger lover. Edmund Purdom plays the younger man. The third part of the film stars Ingrid Bergman and Omar Scharif as an American millionaires and a Yugoslavian rebel. This section is a bit far-fetched as this rich spoiled widow becomes a radiant freedom fighter using her yellow Rolls to carry rebels to fight the invading Italians in World War II. The second part of the film is actually the strongest. It is the story of a gangster returning to Italy with his Miami girlfriend, played by Shirley MacLain. She gradually falls for an extremely handsome and charming gigolo, played by Alain Delon. Art Carney is fantastic as the mobster's right-hand man. He is perfect and he, Delon, and MacLain give the best performances in the film. This is highly recommended, especially for younger folks who may have never heard of this old classic.
