WYSW: Days of Wine and Roses (1962)


Let me just say this before anything: I have always loved black-and-white films more than the multicolored ones, for that je ne sais quoi that they gloriously possess. I think they have their own distinctive appeal that today’s blockbusters lack (pitifully). Anyway, to me this movie - directed by one of my favourite directors, Blake Edwards - is magical. Not in a fantastically avant-garde, jolly wonderful way, but in a bittersweet and painfully realistic way that is just touching. The story revolves around an everyday-life couple, Joe and Kirsten Clay, played by Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick.

WYSW: How To Steal A Million (1966)


The first time I heard about this movie I was very much enchanted with Audrey Hepburn and her amazing talent. Her very first film that I watched was Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which turned out to be one of my favourite films of all time. Then there was Peter O’Toole as her love interest in here. I mean, you just cannot not love a Hepburn-O’Toole pairing! They make one very lovely couple, and in my opinion their on-screen chemistry is adorable in How To Steal A Million.
