Former film star Jack Andrus is released from a sanitarium where he has lived for the previous three years, suffering from alcoholism, a traumatic automobile accident, and a severe mental breakdown. He's been offered two weeks of work in Rome by Maurice Kruger, his old director, who himself is near the end of his fading career and under pressure from his parsimonious Italian producer to finish his picture on time and under budget. Jack is also pressed from a manipulative ex-wife, a rising but self-destructive young star, the director's shrewish wife, and a temperamental Italian diva who requires handling with kid gloves. When the Kruger suffers a heart attack, Andrus views the opportunity as a last chance at the redemption of his personal life and professional career.Written by
Kirk Douglas was paid $500,000 for acting in this film, and was also entitled to 10% of the profits (but there weren't any). Cyd Charisse was paid $50,000 and was cast despite Douglas's strong opposition. See more »
In most of Jack's driving scenes, his steering inputs, or lack thereof, don't match what's going on in the rear-projection background. This is most obvious when he goes on his drunken, reckless drive with Carlotta as his passenger. See more »

No, Liz, no, that's not quite it.
Oh, it sure isn't. I'm lousy today.
No, no, no. Say, Liz...

What do you love most in the world?
Hey, you remember, uh, that ice cream parlor, Wil Wright's, on Sunset Strip? Those huge, luscious banana splits, a dollar a throw.
Worth every penny.
Well, next time you dub, you think to yourself...

good follow-up to THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
I think that your opinion of this movie will be strongly influenced depending on whether or not you first saw THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. I tried watching this film before I saw the prequel and got tired of it and stopped watching. However, a few months later I saw the first film and then saw TWO WEEKS IN ANOTHER TOWN. Then, it all made sense to me,...how the horribly manipulative jerk in THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL slid over the years into the pathetic has-been in this film. I really liked it, as everyone hate ample reason to both hate the lead character, Douglas, and to thank him for their success. A pretty deep film and a perfect follow-up.
