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 »

"In the Mood for a Nap"
25 June 2002 | by Poseidon-3See all my reviews

This is a pretty strange little film about an illicit affair between a married man and his best friend's wife. Finch is the man, a publisher, who finds himself drawn to friend Hill's much younger wife. Finch's wife is a virtual shut-in, played by Lansbury. She suffers from the effects of a car wreck (shown in flashback, in which she looks OLDER than present day!) Fonda is the young lady married to Hill who suffers from emotional problems, lung difficulties and the ugliest hair ever to hit the silver screen. She is downright scary in this film! Her make-up is done in such a severe way and her hair (a hideous "fall", actually) is so unflattering and Orry-Kelly decks her out in an increasingly bizarre set of clothes and atrocious hats that the film becomes a sort of fashion horror movie! Fonda, so attractive in the films before and after this one is made to look like a total freak. At least the unflattering, ugly clothes are something to focus on because the story and the romance between her and Finch is deadly dull. The one bright spot is Lansbury. Though her character is foolish and unreal, she steals every scene she's in, looks terrific (though she keeps obsessing about a "scar" which is almost completely impossible to see!) and when she exits the film, she takes the life right out of it. She gets off a few wisecracks and displays a sexier figure than she often got to show. Cummings is wasted in a very small role. Apart from her first scene, she gets virtually nothing to do or say. The film is watchable for it's Grecian scenery and for the camp value of watching the May-December maneuverings of Finch and Fonda. The music score is exceedingly annoying and the short running time often feels like twice that. Sherwood appears very briefly...the film definitely could have used more of her.
