When they still made movies: Room at the Top

Lately we have been spending a lot of time watching old, mostly B&W, films, many of which we remembered from the time when they came out.

Last night it was the 1959 Room at the Top, with the fantastic duet of Laurence Harvey and Simone Signoret - she received Best Actress Oscar for that role.

It is not possible to recommend that film too highly.

For a syrupy rendition of a similar theme, but with an obligatory happy ending, there is 1960 From the Terrace, not such a bad film, starring Paul Newman with his wife Joanne Woodward.

Old World... New World... seldom are the differences more pronounced.
