Trivia

Lawrence Durrell, mentioned by Frederick Bonner, was noted for his travel writing about Greece and the Mediterranean, including the books 'Bitter Lemons' and 'The Greek Islands'. See more »

Goofs

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 happen to love it
25 March 2013 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

If ever there was an underrated film, In the Cool of the Day is it. I am not one to dismiss it as a soaper, nor do I share in the silly fixation on Jane Fonda's period hairstyle, which becomes her to my mind. As I see it, the film not only bears reasonable scrutiny, I would not change a thing about it.

The age-old theme of loyalty clashed with forbidden love never stales so long as it is done right, as is the case here. More than an intelligent study of sexual propriety, the film is an ode to traveling, something I might just do indefinitely if only I could. The four principal characters are well-established. Jane Fonda's Christine Bonner and Peter Finch's Murray Logan share an affinity for Greece that is evinced most compellingly. Greece itself is very well shot by Peter Newbrook, who did second unit photography on David Lean's visually amazing Lawrence of Arabia.

So, it's a match made in Graecophilic heaven. Unfortunately, he is married to the contemptibly cantankerous Sibyl (Angela Lansbury), and she to the doting, tiresomely prudent Sam (Arthur Hill). Christine's overbearing self-indulgent mother is another fly in the ointment. What's more, Christine has a serious lung condition.

All in all, a most satisfying little known film with an average rating of 5.0 on 215 votes. Frightful luck as to the few who have seen it, perhaps. It's a very small sampling, so give it a go.

Oh, and IMDb, a cover picture would be nice. Please and thank you.
