Light nostalgia, not Shakespeare...
17 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this early '60s film on TCM while surfing late this evening. I agree with most of the previous posters' opinions, but I think one other element should be added: At the dawn of the passenger jet age, before hijackings that turned airports into minimum security prisons, and 9/11, which turned them into crowded LuftStalags, this was what air travel was like. Technologically and socially, one watches a film like this not simply to be entertained, but to be reminded of those last moments before JFK was killed, Vietnam, and the turning inside out of America. As for performances, Karl Malden waltzes effortlessly through this movie, threatening to steal every scene he's in--even from the gorgeous women. (Speaking of which, Pamela Tiffin is radioactive hot. )
