Love In The Afternoon - DVD - Review - Audrey Hepburn is the Best
Reviewed in the United States on October 12, 2020
3 stars overall for Love In The Afternoon movie on DVD.
5 stars for the incomparable and multiple award winning actress Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn portrayal of Ariane Chavasse saved this movie from being a total flop. She deserved top billing in this movie over Gary Cooper.
3 stars for John McGiver portrayal of Monsieur X.
3 stars for Maurice Chevalier portrayal of Claude Chavasse.
1 star for Gary Cooper *uninspiring and unconvincing* portrayal of Frank Flannagan. Zero on screen chemistry because he was old enough to be Audrey Hepburn's father.
2 stars for the studio, producer, and director for *mismatched casting*.
Audrey Hepburn was *28 years younger* than Gary Cooper. In this movie, Hepburn looked 35 years younger than Cooper.
I would have given 4 stars overall for the movie Love In The Afternoon . . . if Gary Cooper was replaced by any of the following younger actors :
Audrey Hepburn should be a role model for young girls in the 2020s and beyond. Words that best describe Audrey Hepburn include the following.
