"All right then, run, lady, and you keep on running. Buy yourself a bus ticket and disappear. Change your name, dye your hair, get lost - and then maybe, just maybe, you're gonna be safe from me."
Watching Paul Newman with Alex North’s score reminds me of Jeanne Moreau and Miles Davis’ work in Elevator to the Gallows. Maybe not as sophisticated but still very sexy.
Remarquable interprétation de Paul Newman, consacré par un prix d'interprétation à Cannes en 1958, sous l'égide d'un solide metteur en scène confirmé... www.cinefiches.com
Much Southern Ado About Nothing, with great dialogues and sizzling hot Newman.
6/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-1ol
As meandering and laid-back as a sweltering August afternoon, but Newman and Woodward's romantic chemistry is a landmark of method acting.
Southern men bein' southern.
