Two For The Road (1967). First got to see this..ooh, must be ten years ago now, on a night off in Tokyo. We rented it from some exotic avant garde movie place in Ebisu. Hard to imagine, even just ten years ago, the lengths one had to go to to find stuff like this. Nowadays… well, I just checked, and Amazon can guarantee delivery of the DVD to my door by noon tomorrow for the princely sum of £4.97. Not quite the same somehow..
Anyway, here’s a little taste of that wonderful Stanley Donen movie, featuring my current favourite Mancini score, and starring the inspired but, at the time, unlikely pairing of Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney. Funny, every time I watch it I’m reminded of another unlikely pair..
