11 Views · 6 months ago

Director Henry Levin followed up this light romantic comedy with Where the Boys Are and started a beach trend going. This conventional story stars one of his favorite actors Clifton Webb as Robert Dean, the father of two lively teen-age daughters. He and his wife Mary (Jane Wyman) accompany their daughters on a South American junket. Meg (Jill St. John) and Betsy (Carol Lynley the 17-year-old model turned actress) are the teens. Since Robert is a psychiatrist, one would assume he has the inside scoop on the teen years, but as the family make stops in Lima, Sao Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro it is clear that the daughters are winning the day. Handsome young men enter the picture, and it is not long before romance follows right behind.

13 Views · 6 months ago

Scotland Yard receives news, that bank notes stolen in a Royal Mint van heist have turned up in South America.
Inspector Caesar Smith, (Denis Shaw), is put on the case, and ends up in Brazil, where he learns that the stolen notes were used in the purchase of coffee beans, which leaves him trying to track down the buyer, as they were more than likely the men behind the Royal Mint robbery.
He follows the trail which leads to Europe, before ending up back in Britain at the door of possibly the guilty coffee importer/van robber.
This is a pretty well paced, and enjoyable, little film at just over an hour, in which Denis Shaw appears to be having a ball with his globetrotting, karate chopping, and coffee beans!
Maybe not a classic, but an interesting way to spend 60 odd minutes.
