4.0 out of 5 stars Shirley MacLain and Art Carney steal the film, July 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Yellow Rolls Royce (DVD)
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.
