"Ripley" has nothing to do with Hitchcock, though Hitchcock did purchase "Strangers on a Train" from the same wrtier, Patricia Highsmith, at the beginning of her career.

On our flight home from Paris this week, we watched "The Truth about Charlie" and "The Bourne Identity" both had great Paris scenes! It was fun seeing locations we had just visited!

"Barry Lyndon" by Stanley Kubrick. 1974 starred Ryan O'Neal as a young Irish lad who rises from poverty to the highest of English Nobility. What an amazing epic, and the cinematography (Academy Award) was breathtaking. 1500's England at it's absolute finest. After all Kubrick was a photographer.

Kristy -

If you enjoyed "The Truth About Charlie" you might be interested in the earlier version of this story - "Charade" with Audrey Hepburn and Carey Grant. In the film, they stayed at the Hotel St. Jacques in the 5th (though it looks rather different now.)

As a little girl, Around the World in 80 Days was a real eyeopener. On TV I still occasionally see that old black and white Kathryn Hepburn/Rossano Brassi movie set in Venice with the name I can never remember. Then, From Russia With Love made me dream about train travel...The Pink Panther series...The Spy Who Came in from the Cold...Charade...Dr. Zhivago...actually those were the movies I remember watching as a teenager which sort of planted the idea in my head that I would visit all those romantic places in Europe. Later on it was movies like Room with a View, and Educating Rita.

I think Ryan's world, more than any picture on Irland made me think of Irland and WEE Georgie for Scotland. Does anyone know where they were filmed???

Let's see... John Wayne's movie in Innisfree, The Quiet Man

obvious choices like Braveheart and Rob Roy...

the more modern version of Sabrina, has some idealized Paris scenes I liked...

The end of the "Shawshank Redemption" when Red meets up with Andy on the Mexican Beach- makes me want to pack my bags, get on a plane to Mexico, and spend my days drinking Margaritas and fixing my boat.

The film set in Venice with Katherine Hepburn and Rossano ? Brazzi was "Summertime" and it was in color. Perhaps you remember seeing it on a black and white set. It's still one of my favorites--especially the scenes where she first sees Brazzi. Too funny!

How about The" Last Time I Saw Paris"? with Elizabeth taylor? I saw the film when I was a teenager, the Paris scenes were spectaculars and I wanted so much to go, to wander around Montmartre,Le Sacre Coeur, walking to Pont Neuf, la Seine..I could picture Edith Piaf( Le Petit oiseaux de Paris) singing with her rasp and longing voice La Vie En Rose... Oh my, I am glad that I am going back in july... Another cute movie that I really enjoyed was" Roman Holiday.". It portrayed the glory and the splendor of ancient Rome.. And of course there are others innumerable movies that I really enjoyed about the Orient and the Polynesian islands..I am so grateful that being an Air Force wife, I was able to live in the Orient(Taipei) and Honolulu.. I will always cherish my tour over there.

For Elle, I saw the movie" La Poche" when I was studying french at college.. It was so Funny when the little girl cried j'ai faim, and all the tenants in the building send her baskets with food and bottles of wine...It was hysterical, I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes ....

Another vote for Bread and Tulips-wonderful. I just saw The Quiet American and that made me want to go to Vietnam. Very good movie.

I became enchanted with the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island after seeing it in "Somewhere in Time". The hotel didn't disappoint, but the island did. I spelled horse manure for days after returning home.

I belive that truffaut movie about that little girl was in "small change"the english title here.
There was an italian film with a scene that that scene reminded me of, only this was a grown man taken out for a picnic from a home to the countryside. he climbed a tree, and shouted "Ï want a woman."

"The Mouse That Roared" starring Peter Sellers, a very timely movie even though it was made in the late 1950s, and now I'm looking everywhere for Grand Fenwick on the map...

Anyone else seen this flick lately?

Oh, and "European Vacation" The ultimate euro-stereotype and oh so funny. The classic line when the family was in Germany looking for house number six, "Me and my family are looking for sechs." LOL!

kismetchimera (great name, btw):

I think that scene is one of the best and most memorable film scenes of all time! My husband and I both had tears streaming down our faces. . .

French Kiss with Meg Ryan and Kevin Klein.
The train scene when Meg Ryan eats cheese! Always makes me laugh.
The scene standing in the vineyard, I want to be there!!
Actually, if there is no snow, I want to be wherever that is!
