Now and then I get to fill in a blank, see a classic movie that I somehow missed. This was one. I’ve always heard good things about it, but just kept missing it. Now I’ve seen it, and it deserves its ranking as a classic. Billy Wilder directed. It was Audrey Hepburn’s second movie, and cemented her status as Hollywood’s new princess. Now, of course, she is one of the Legends. Humphrey Bogart plays out of character as a stuffy, cold millionaire businessman, and does a good job of it. William Holden is his playboy younger brother. It all works just fine … except for Holden’s hair. It just does not work to see him as a blonde. Sorry, it just doesn’t.
