I watched Love In The Afternoon tonight and what a stupid movie. Why did they cast Gary Cooper alongside Audrey Hepburn? Were grandpa playboys not creeper in the late 50's? His lines were lame compared to her's and are we suppose to believe a young clever cellist living in france has no other options than a rich aging womanizer? The more Billy Wilder films I watch the less he impresses me. I'm beginning to think Ace In The Hole and maybe the Apartment are the only films I really enjoy of his. This film really pissed me off, almost as much as Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Both are stupid aging male fantasies clumsily getting the younger smarter woman. What a crock of shit.

Fwiw, the Cooper part in LITA was supposed to be played by Cary Grant (who was also old, but not as decrepit looking as Cooper).

Oh, this must be drawing from the same well of journalistic writing that I had a German-language anthology from? Those are great.
One of my fav moments is when he profiles an American businessman and states that "only an American could enjoy drinking this strange 'coca cola'", foreshadowing for 123.
