Love In The Afternoon (1957) Review


Good
Audrey Hepburn and Billy Wilder put together another Sabrina -- that is, a relatively staid romantic comedy where Hepburn fals for a much older American. It's over two hours of overwrought sentimentalism and terribly corny jokes, pegged to a hard-to-swallow love affair between Hepburn and an ancient Gary Cooper. Generally regarded as a classic, probably by people who haven't sat through it. Based on the book Ariane.

She looks like she's about 16.

A New Kind Of Love Review


Weak
It may have been made in the 1960s, but the "new kind of love" promised in the title of this film isn't swinging or orgies. In fact this kind of love actually doesn't seem so new at all.

This bizarre oddity actually features real-life husband and wife Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, five years after they were married, and thrown into an absurd love story that makes minimal sense and barely holds your interest for more than a few minutes. The setup is this: Newman is a journalist in Paris, and he thinks Woodward (despite her mannish looks here) is a high-priced call girl. He claims he wants to write a story about her, which of course is an entry to a love affair.
