Elke Sommer's topless shower scene was cut from UK theatrical release. All subsequent UK releases, and BBC television screenings, used the cut theatrical print. However the BBC2 broadcast in September included the shower scene. See more »
In an early panning shot, we see an Arab passenger get out of a 1976 Cadillac Seville sedan outside the A&P Bank. These cars were never available as RHD, so a front-seat passenger, dressed as chauffeur, gets out and opens the O/S door. This is a farcical set-up, as he should have exited the front N/S (LH) door, and opened the rear N/S door for his passenger, avoiding the risk of following traffic-absurd!.. See more »
I knew nothing about "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" when I started watching it. The title made me assume that it was about the hippie movement in the California college (until I saw the cover). It turned out to be pretty interesting, with Richard Jordan playing a man who gets out of jail and hopes to go straight but is recruited by a crime syndicate to abet their planned robbery. The story of an ex-con who has to go back to a life of crime has gotten overused throughout the years, but this is still a pretty fun movie. And not just because of a certain shot of Elke Sommer!
As with just about every heist-themed movie ("Topkapi" was the best ever), the heist itself is the coolest scene. It times everything perfectly, and then has a neat little surprise at the end. I certainly enjoyed it. Also starring are David Niven, Oliver Tobias, Gloria Grahame, Hugh Griffith (in his final role) and early appearances of John Rhys-Davies (Sallah in the Indiana Jones movies and Gimli in the "Lord of the Rings" movies) and Alfred Molina (the mayor in "Chocolat" and Doc Ock in "Spider-Man 2").
Cowboy indeed! (but what guy wouldn't be in Elke Sommer's presence?)
