Summertime (1955) directed by David Lean
is one of my favorite movies and of Katharine Hepburn.
David Lean also directed ,another fave of mine,
Katharine plays Jane Hudson who travels
to Venice for the first time. A trip she has been
saving for years. Jane is looking for something.
Could it be love or adventure?
I won't spoil it by saying what she is looking
for or what she finds. On her trip to Venice
she meets Renato de Rossi played by the
most swoonworthy Rossano Brazzi.
Besides, the relaxed sexiness of Rossano. What I love
most about Summertime, is the beautiful vulnerability
and pathos Katharine exudes in this movie. To me
this is one of her finest parts.
If you have never seen, Summertime. Now is the time
to see it. Also, be on the lookout for a young
Darren McGavin. Who years later starred in one
of my favorite shows: The Night Stalker.
Of course, you know I have a clip to share. Enjoy
PS. I have never been to Venice. Every time I see
this movie, I'm reminded that I must go someday.
