Movie Diary 8/16/2017

Three Coins in the Fountain (Jean Negulesco, 1954). I like 50s movies and I like movies about Americans in Europe. This example is rolled up into a big cheeseball featuring three actresses who had rather curious careers: Jean Peters, Dorothy McGuire, and Maggie McNamara. Lotsa widescreen scenery, and Sinatra sings the title tune. Rome looks positively depopulated, raising the possibility that there was a time when the great tourist destinations were not overrun all the time. Clifton Webb gets top billing.
