Trivia

Because of a phenomenal success of the book, 20th Century Fox was sure that this was going to be a huge hit at the box office. At the same time there were such low expectations surrounding Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) that most theaters refused to book the film. So the distributor at Fox came up with the idea of a package deal: telling theater chains that if they wanted this movie they had to book Star Wars first. This movie went on to become a box office dud while Star Wars went on to become one of the most successful films of all time. See more »

Goofs

When Noelle insists that Larry fly her to Switzerland in Deneris's private plane in the middle of a snowstorm, the plane lands at night on a 1970's airport runway. Seen through the plane's windshield, the runway has pathfinder landing lights along its edges and strips of florescent landing lights down its center. (A 1947 airfield would have used large searchlights as landing lights.) See more »

Quotes

Larry Douglas: [dancing together] Are my medals cutting into your boobs?
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Shakespeare or Marlowe?
Larry Douglas: Cathy, you have to know how I feel about you, especially when we dance so goddamn close.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Actually, maybe we should just sit down.
Larry Douglas: [sitting down] I don't know why you're so annoyed. That's one of the nicest compliments a man could pay a woman.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Strange, but I feel you're the only man that can come up with it any time day or night.
Larry Douglas: Only with you.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Oh yeah. What are you packin' there, a Louisville Slugger?

not as good as FROM NOON 'TILL THREE
13 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

What a success this film was in Australia in 1977.... it ran for months gathering momentum among shop assistants and daytime single women ticket-buyers as a much whispered about 'must see'. well for us fellers, it was a bit raunchy showing off Gallic nubile sexiness among the ruins of Paris in WW2. I guess it also caused the rise of the miniseries movie potboiler drama that paved the way for THE BETSY, THE Greek TYCOON and many other 2hr plus glossy romantic efforts.... most long forgotten. TV really corralled this type of book/drama on film with DYNASTY and KNOTTS LANDING etc. I am surprised that is was considered a flop in the USA when a big hit elsewhere. My main memory is from a suburban cinema in Sydney....400 person sized crowd of couples.... then shocked silence during a bathtub abortion scene... followed immediately by (only) one huge athletic man staggering from his seat in a state of distress, dizzy from what he had seen, lumbering Frankenstein monster-style across the aisle, and ploughed headfirst through the plaster wall on the stairway to the foyer. The building shook and we ran to see what happened. There he was, head first through the wall, slumped in collapse, with frantic audience members trying to pull him, legs first, from the hole. He woke up and started crying: "Awww I didn't like that" he sobbed. We had to stop the projector, tell everyone that he was alright and re wound the film. "Aww don't show that bit again" he protested, so we didn't, we re started from just after. With a mug of tea and his tears wiped up, we re sat him with his cringing date and the movie rolled on....and on and on. Just so you know...FROM NOON TILL THREE is a funny (!) Charles Bronson western with Jill Ireland.. equally as enjoyable 70s. No bathtub abortions but a good train smash.
