Goofs

When dining with "Sylvia Merrill" in Alfama, she inquires about the song "Old Lisbon" (yes, "Ancient Lisbon") being played in the restaurant. "Captain Robert John Evans " tells her "It's sort of a Home, Sweet Home, for Brazilians". Only a fiendish evil crook could display such ignorance about the beautiful music composed in 1937 by Raúl Portela with lyrics by José Galhardo and Amadeu do Vale. A Portuguese classic that Amália dos Santos made famous. Nelson Riddle took it to America and made it the soundtrack for "Lisbon". See more »

Quotes

Capt. Robert John Evans: [almost shouting] A CROOK!

Republic's last classy drama
12 February 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Probably one of Republic's last good films, LISBON is a feast for the eyes and a good thriller to boot. Produced in Portugal, I assume on a Republic budget subsidised by the Portugese government or tourist office, Ray Milland produces, directs and acts in a lush and lavish romantic drama. The music theme Lisbon Antigua was a massive radio and disc hit in its day and it would be inetersting to know who much in boxoffice it contributed. The indoor studio scenes are very snazzy and well decorated, but some outdoor seabound back projection is wobbly. Still, the location shoot is used to excellent effect and I would say was very much influenced by To Catch A Thief, as is the whole reason for the film existing. Republic didn't make anything much of note around this (maybe only COME NEXT SPRING)and it is probably as modern and A grade as they were able to create by 1956. They folded in 1959, their market overtaken by Allied Artists, AIP and TV. It would be so beautiful to see on a cinema screen as it is in republic's NATURAMA process, their very own brand of CINEMASCOPE. Well worth finding and enjoying.
