I'd forgotten she was married to Peter Viertel -- who has now died.

Yeah, he was there on that Night of the Iguana set.

How is From Here To Eternity? MUBI is showing, anything there beyond the beachside kiss?

otherwise overrated; wildly entertaining novel tho

Entertaining movie. An adult potboiler.

ERnest Borgnine pretty terrifying in it iirc

Thanks all, I'll give it a go.

one year passes...

Kael thought The Sundowners might be her "richest" performance -- she's certainly the best reason to watch it, given the longing frustrations and the sparring with sheep-driving husband Mitchum, but the whole thing is at the midpoint between Hawks and a Disney family movie. With many many sheep, and Glynis Johns having a (mercifully offscreen) affair with Peter Ustinov.

I always liked it despite being about 20 mins too long; it was a PBS standard in the '80s. Mitchum is certainly the best onscreen partner she ever had, and she's rather lusty.

Possibly more sexual chemistry with Bob when she was a nun in Heaven Knows, Mr Allison.

My favorite movie, probably

it's probably the P&P movie I've watched the most times so yeah "fave" as well on those terms. Despite Canterbury Tale probably being a more complex and interesting one.
