I didn't realize Newman's breakout role was due to James Dean's death, originally slated to play Rocky. Newman really shows his chops here. He really shouldnt be even close to believable playing an Italian American from the burroughs, but 20 min in I was convinced. Angeli is wonderful in her role, a shame her career faltered and she took her own life later on. A real talent. Great location photography too. 4.5 stars
NORMA - Come on, we're late for our wedding. ROCKY - How can you ask me to go in a courthouse? NORMA - That's where people get married. ROCKY - Courthouses make me be uncomfortable. NORMA - Definitely! NORMA - Rocky, you've given me a lot of reasons why not. But I still haven't heard what would convince me. Rocky - What's that? Norma - Just tell me you don't love me. Rocky - Come on.
