    Summer Night in Town

    ★★★★

    Only the French would make a film like this, with only two actors, in one apartment, basically doing nothing but talk for 85 minutes. I can't imagine the U.S. producing a film like this. It must have been extremely cheap to make.

    Her apartment was fabulous. An apartment that big in Paris would cost millions of euros now.

    This is the 20th Michel Deville directed film that I have seen. It's too bad that most of his films haven't been seen by very many people, at least not here on Letterboxd.

    R.I.P. Sean Connery

    Still one of the best Bond films. And lets not forget the scene where Ursula Andress comes out of the ocean in her white bikini!

    On Dangerous Ground

    ★★★★½

    Excellent film noir with Robert Ryan as a hard boiled cop who beats up too many suspects and gets sent to the country to cool off. While there, he investigates a murder and comes across Ida Lupino, who plays a blind woman who is hiding the murderer, her mentally handicapped brother.

    Ryan and Lupino are both excellent, with Lupino doing the best job of portraying a blind person that I have ever seen. She also apparently did some of the directing when Nicholas Ray was ill. Beautiful cinematography and excellent use of music as well.

    Our Man in Havana

    ★★★★½

    This film, "set in Havana before the revolution" was actually filmed in Havana only three months after Castro took power. This is my favorite Alec Guinness film and one of my favorite films period,This is the third time I have watched this film, and it gets better every time. Guinness plays a vacuum cleaner salesman who gets talked into becoming a spy for the British government.

    Guinness is brilliant, as is all of the fantastic supporting cast. Noel Coward, Maureen…
