40 Carats

220px-FortyCarats2I came across a Wikipedia page recently listing films set in Greece, and thought it would be fun to watch them in order…

So I started with 40 Carats, which is a 1960s style farce about a woman who travels to Greece and meets a younger man, and has a one night stand.

Then she goes back to the US and of course he turns up unexpectedly and all sorts of trouble ensues.

Delightfully dated, and there are only a couple of scenes actually in Greece, disappointing from that point of view, but great fun nonetheless…

Starring Liv Ullman, Edward Albert, and with an aging Gene Kelly.

I’ll give it four stars…
