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 »

If you like Jane Fonda, you will enjoy her acting in this picture and also how very young looking she looked in all her fancy looking clothes. There is also fantastic photography through out Greece and the ancient ruins, also a nice Greek dance with Peter Finch and Jane Fonda. Murray Logan, (Peter Finch) is a successful author married to Sybil Logan, (Angela Lansbury) and they are a very unhappy couple because of a tragic event in their early marriage. Sam Bonner, (Arthur Hill) is a very good friend of Murray and one day he meets his wife, Christine Bonner, (Jane Fonda). As soon as this couple look at each other, you can see in their eyes an outstanding attraction and this is what makes this film a triangle of love and romance and plenty of fights.
