Come September (1961)

Ah the Sixties, when romcoms were glossy and mainly inoffensive and women wore beautiful clothes without being slut-shamed. Stanley Shapiro and Maurice Richlin wrote a few of them for Doris Day at Universal and in the midst of that deluge and immediately before Richlin started writing the Pink Panther series, someone thought it’d be a busman’s holiday to set a movie in Italy because Liguria, Lazio and Milano are pretty great places to shoot a movie. With Rock Hudson as the home owner coming back to resume his relationship with La Lollo only to find she’s got another guy and his major domo (Walter Slezak) is making money on the side by using it as a hotel in his absence and Lo! Bobby Darin and his gang are making moves on Sandra Dee and her posse. Bobby sings Multiplication. Gosh, they really don’t make them like this any more. Lovely, light entertainment.
