The couple soon run off to Greece together to pursue the romance. Written by
The car used in Greece was a 1956 Cadillac Series 60 Fleetwood Special Sedan. However 2 cars were used, one with black wall tires and one with period-correct white wall tires. When in the city, the car has white wall tires. Once the car gets on a country road, the tires change to black wall. It could also be that the city scenes were shot together, likewise the country scenes and in the interim the tires were changed. See more »
I thought the movie was unique if not wonderful, being only ever so slightly cliché in its ending. I could not, however, tell if the style in which the film was shot was meant to be unusual and fresh or if this achieved addition to the film was simply an accident brought on by clumsiness. As for questions concerning the title, I would recommend the book of Genesis (to be found in the Bible for all of those who don't know) where Adam walked with God in The Cool of the Day. I don't have a Bible handy at the moment so I will not quote you can read this for yourself. Fonda reminds me of a young Katharine Hepburn in this film. She seems unsure of herself, probably because this was one of her first major roles, and like the Great Kate, in her very early films, she uses a higher voice than is generally attributed to her in this early film. It is not until a few years later in each career that we hear those majestic deeper voices that command so much respect from audiences.
