Trivia

The "Tixier" graffito that Reno Davis (Peppard) passes twice on the riverbank refers to Jean-Louis Tixier-Vignancour who contested the 1965 French presidential election for the far-right - which would have made him a popular choice for some of the movie's protagonists. See more »

Not Bad
24 December 2012 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films I have fond memories of from my childhood. I remember I used to tune it in every time it appeared on TV. Yes, now being an old fart and having finally seen it again after it's long absence, I was somewhat disappointed, but not entirely. There are still some wonderful things about it. Primarily the score by Frances Lai, the beautiful photography and scenery (it made me want to go to Paris for a long time), Orson Welles as the villain, but mostly the wonderful Inger Stevens as the female protagonist. What hasn't survived the test of time are the silly plot and George Peppard. I used to like him in his TV show (Banacek, NOT the A-Team), but then I heard an interview with Pat Neal which told about what a bastard he was in real life, and I can't find myself liking any of his performances now, even though I may like the movie. Anyway, I do still enjoy the movie, and am glad I was finally able to find it again.
