The Yellow Rolls-Royce


Following the success of The V.I.P.s (1963), the Anthony Asquith-Terence Rattigan duo reunited for another stylish piece of fluff where wealthy people deal with love and betrayal. The movie is divided into three chapters, set in different decades, anchored by a yellow Rolls-Royce; the first introduces us to an English Lord (Rex Harrison), the second to a Chicago mobster (George C. Scott) and the third to an American widow (Ingrid Bergman) in Yugoslavia. Never boring; gorgeous views of Italy and an entertaining performance by Shirley MacLaine as a moll makes the middle part stand out.Ā
