THE VINTAGE
1957, Warner Bros., 92 min, USA, Dir: Jeffrey Hayden

Adapted by screenwriter Michael Blankfort from a novel by Ursula Keir, this intoxicating crime drama follows two Italian brothers - one of them on the run from a murder charge - who seek refuge in the wine country of southern France. The criminal Ernesto (John Kerr) is drawn to a married woman (Michele Morgan) while his sibling Giancarlo (Mel Ferrer) attracts the affection of the young Lucienne (Pier Angeli). With the police and an angry husband (Leif Erickson) to contend with, will the brothers choose love or life on the lam? Features sweeping vistas of the French countryside as well as a pulsating score by David Raksin (which includes guitar work by costar Theodore Bikel).
