    Re: Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?

    "With a lightweight storyline about two old flames renewing their acquaintance against a festive Hollywood backdrop, Christmas in Beverly Hills is not your obvious classic of Italian cinema. Yet this lowbrow yuletide tale has sparked an unholy row in the nation of Federico Fellini and Roberto Rossellini after it was revealed it had benefited from a special art-house status that entitled the makers to lucrative government tax breaks. The film, directed by Neri Parenti, is one of eight movies in the long-running "Christmas in ..." franchise, which also include 2002's Christmas On the Nile, 2004's Christmas in Miami and 2008's Christmas in Rio. Recounting an unlikely reunion on the streets of Los Angeles between gigolo Carlo and Cristina, a woman he abandoned when she was pregnant 17 years earlier, it has been a hit on the Italian multiplex circuit. Since its release on 18 December, Parenti's film has earned a hefty €14m (12.6m). But the film's production history has caused consternation in Italy, with the columnist Ernesto Galli della Loggia protesting its tax-break status. The film, he wrote in the pages of Corriere della Sera, was "an uninterrupted stream of vulgarity peppered with swearwords, a feature-length obscenity like you might find scrawled on the wall of a station toilet".

    The 10th Victim (Italian: La decima vittima) is a 1965 Italian/French international co-production science fiction film directed by Elio Petri and starring Marcello Mastroianni and Ursula Andress, and featuring Elsa Martinelli in a supporting role. The picture is based on Robert Sheckley's 1953 short story "Seventh Victim". In the near future, big wars are avoided by giving individuals with violent tendencies a chance to kill in the Big Hunt. The Hunt is the most popular form of entertainment in the world and also attracts participants who are looking for fame and fortune. It includes ten rounds for each competitor, five as the hunter and five as the victim. The survivor of ten rounds becomes extremely wealthy and retires. Scenes switch between the pursuit, romance between the hunter and the victim, and a narrator explaining the rules and justification of the Hunt. Caroline Meredith (Ursula Andress) is the huntress armed with a high caliber Bosch shotgun looking for her tenth victim. Marcello Poletti (Marcello Mastroianni) is the victim. He is reluctant to kill Meredith as he is not sure whether she is his hunter, but then later because they become romantically involved. To maximize financial gain, Meredith wants to get a perfect kill in front of the cameras as she has negotiated a major sponsor from the Ming Tea Company

    Lots of Swinging '60s London and just a bit of a white 3000 in the background in the 1969 film, "The Big Switch":

    Another portrayal of a fine, upstanding Healey driver:



    Heartbeat is a British police drama series set in 1960s North Riding of Yorkshire and broadcast on ITV in 18 series between 1992 and 2010.
    The show is set in the 1960s, although the specific timeframe is vague; various episodes within the series take place in a loosely defined "time-out-of-time" between 1964 and 1969. The series initially revolves around the work of a group of police officers in the fictional town of Ashfordly in the North Riding of Yorkshire, whose "patch" also includes the nearby village of Aidensfield, a fictionalised version of the real-life village of Goathland in the North York Moors, where the series is partly filmed. Each episode is an hour long, including commercial breaks.The series was originally based on the Constable books written by former policeman Peter Walker under the pen-name Nicholas Rhea. The title Heartbeat was chosen to represent "the bobby's beat and the medical connotations of the word 'heart'"[6] ("bobby" being British slang for a police officer (from Robert Peel), and "medical connotations" referring to the medical themes that have featured regularly in the show since its inception). The show was originally a starring vehicle for ex-EastEnders actor Nick Berry, cast as PC Nick Rowan, the Aidensfield policeman newly arrived from London with his wife Kate, a doctor.

    The lyrics in the opening song of this clip that refer to "a friend of Sacha Distel" are somewhat coincidental to the Healey as Distel, a French singer-songwriter, has already been featured in the Celebrity Healeys thread taking his then-girlfriend Brigitte Bardot out for a drive in a 100:

    Interestingly, Fred Astaire's "Australian Grand Prix" winning Ferrari 750 Monza sold at RM Monterey in 2011 for $2,530,000:
    http://www.rmauctions.com/lots/lot.cfm?lot_id=1057361

    According to the Wikipedia "On the Beach" article, the racing scenes were filmed at Riverside Raceway.

    Wonder if the 260 bhp Monza would have been faster than a D-type Jag at Riverside?
