The Yellow Rolls Royce (1964)

The Yellow Rolls Royce was a fun movie.  I had never heard of it before this past winter, but I loved it.  The vignette-style of the movie made for some interesting emotional connections which became poignant to me when considering those material things that outlive us.  Shirley MacLaine was great in this movie, which was packed with the likes of Ingrid Bergman, Omar Sharif, Rex Harrison and George C. Scott.  
REVIEWS: An interesting blog over at It Rolls has quite a good review of the movie.  One of the shortcomings of the movie they point out is that it's a little over two hours long - just so you're prepared!  
FAVORITE QUOTE: Paolo Maltese: And this is the girl, my fidanzata, that I am bringing home to meet my folks. Of all the women in the whole world that I can choose from to be my wife, who do I choose? An ignorant slob of a hatcheck girl who thinks Pisa - Piazza del Duomo in Pisa, Joey - is a stopping-off place between hamburger joints.
RATING: A perfectly enjoyable movie.
WATCH IT AGAIN?: I'd watch it again for sure.
DO I WANNA OWN IT?: Probably not. It seems pretty easy to find on just about any digital outlet.
