When Tony Rome is out and about, trouble is sure to follow. I really loved this movie, so much so that I watched it twice in a row. Once for the story and a second time for the atmosphere. I'm a gal who loves details and this film had a lot to savor. Here are some things I picked up on. Enjoy.
Flimsy nightgowns and balcony bar service
7-digit phone numbers without Area Codes
Old-fashioned product logos. In this case, beer cans.
Old-fashioned cars like this blue Ford.
Iconic shots such as this one.
Young Gena Rowlands
Old-fashioned hair clips
Jill St. John and her outfits
Going to bed with full make-up on
Ginormous pools in really fancy seaside hotels
Smaller Floridian seaside hotels. My dad used to own one back in the early 1970s.
Telephone Books/Yellow Pages
Do you like to look for certain details in movies? What do you look for? I particularly like searching for objects that today are obsolete. There is some charm in things we used to rely on but don't anymore. Or even things like staplers that we use today but older versions seem to be of higher quality.
