THE GRASS IS GREENER

 

THE GRASS IS GREENER

Such a great opening titles, designed by Maurice Binder, famous for his work on 14 James Bond films,
Charade, etc… (
you can enjoy the opening sequence here)

Another favorite… I don’t know… it seems I have a soft spot for old, nice looking, romantic comedies, preferably with Cary Grant.  I. JUST. LOVE. THE. GUY. (who doesn’t?)

 

But it’s not just Grant, I swear. The whole cast is superb. Deborah Kerr is just exquisite as always, Jean Simmons is as sweet and even Robert Mitchum is… kind of cool… kind of. In any case, I enjoyed them all and I really do insist that you watch it, especially if you like the fluff of the 60’s.

No, this is not a museum. This is actually a home of Mr and Mrs Rhyall, sounds much like royal, which is not coincidental, since Mr Rhyall is Earl … that makes his wife a … Lady? Is that right? Yes, that’s correct, I just googled it. Anyway,
finding themselves strapped for cash, they turned their mansion into a tourist attraction
. They don’t necessarily enjoy all that turmoil…I mean, after all, they are a British nobility and in itself very private.

But sometimes, scarcely ever – something like this occurs.
An American millionaire incidentally drifts away from the group,
strait into lady’s Rhyall living room.

But, never did Mrs Rhyall fell for a stranger who strolled into her home.
Well, up till now, at least…

So, Hilary Rhyall is in love. It is quite obvious and unmistakable, and Victor Rhyall is not a fool. He knows his wife and her moods. And he cares for her deeply.

So he decides to back off, and she decides to go to London for a few days. “She has a hairdresser’s appointment and she will stay at Hattie’s”. Now, pay close attention to Hattie and her costumes because Christian Dior himself designed them. And, yes – and this is Hattie.

If you guessed this, you were right.

Meanwhile… at the Rhyall mansion…

Now, all joke aside, honestly, I loved the part where Cary Grant or rather his character talks about his wife. He is fully aware that his wife is having an affair. He’s accepting, there’s no judging or eyebrow raising, no shaming… nothing. He just wants her back. But, “It has to be her own will”.

Anyway, there’s going to be a lot of craziness… a really fun to watch craziness.

I actually thought for a while about ending the post right under these next three pics.  But that would be cruel…
