Goodbye Again

Since it's the weekend, it's the time for odds and ends on S & A; this one tidbit I thought you might enjoy.

It's a very brief scene from the 1961 romantic drama Goodbye Again, made and shot entirely in Paris for United Artists, by director Anatole Litvak, who had a very long career making romantic and suspense dramas, starting in France and Germany in the early 1930's, and then in Hollywood up until the early 70's.

This film is also known as Aimez-vous Brahms, since a motif from his third symphony is a plot point and the basis of the movie's main theme. Carroll sings a version of it at the beginning of the scene.

The picture revolves around a love triangle involving a 40-ish interior designer, played by Ingrid Bergman, who's the long suffering and unhappy girlfriend of an unfaithful Yves Montand.

She eventually finds herself in a relationship with a young lawyer half her age (Anthony Perkins), who's crazy in love with her, though their age difference creates a major conflict for her.

I've seen the film a few times before, and it's a lush, romantic soap opera affair, but with a rather interestingly poignant and melancholy undercurrent running though it.

And I think this little sequence, where Perkins is in a nightclub, drowning his sorrows and attracts the curious attention of a very young Diahann Carroll, is very charming in its simple way.

Too bad it's the only scene in which she appears in, in the entire film. I wonder what the film would have been like if they had continued to have an affair? 

Interesting yes?
