Alain Delon's belt goes over the middle belt loop on the back of his white Levis about eight minutes into the film. A couple of minutes later, the belt goes through the loop, though the action was continuous, with no possibility of him having removed his belt to correct this fashion fumble. See more »
Disturbingly beautiful photography of murder at sea.
This is one of those movies that will persist in your memory. Head and shoulders above recent remake - "Talented Mr. Ripley". The beautiful photography and horrifying crimes will fascinate and disturb. Alain Delon is delightfully deceitful (as Ripley). Marie Laforet (Marge) is stunningly beautiful. A must see for film noir fans.
