The Grass Is Greener 1960 Cary Grant Deborah Kerr Robert Mitchum
Stars: Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum
Grass is Greener Story Line. Victor and Hillary are down on their luck to the point that they allow tourists to take guided tours of their castle. But Charles Delacro, a millionaire oil tycoon takes a liking to more than the house. Soon, Hattie Durant gets involved and they have a good old fashioned love triangle.
The cast is obviously the star of this film. Headliners Grant, Kerr, Mitchum and Simmons each do a fabulous job in a movie that depends on intelligent, witty dialogue strewn with double-entendres. The subject is adultery, and whether one (Grant) should make a public fuss when his wife (Kerr) is being swept off her feet by a rich American (Mitchum). Mix in a beautiful, if somewhat dotty, friend (Simmons) who makes sly observances throughout.
The sumptuous setting of the baronial manor and the high production values make the film beautiful to look at, to boot.
Did you know? The fact that the unfortunate Lord is forced to open his manor to paying visitors to support his lifestyle is based on the historical truth of the confiscatory tax policies imposed on the British hereditary gentry by post-WWII Labor governments. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions on these policies, but be assured the film makes no political comment.
