Summertime DVD 1955 Katharine Hepburn Romance Drama NR Color
Stars of Summertime: Katharine Hepburn, Rossano Brazzi, Isa Miranda
American secretary Jane Hudson travels from Ohio to Venice. Jane is a middle-age single and lonely woman that saved money for her summertime dream trip. On the arrival, she immediately befriends the owner of the boarding house Signora Fiorini. During the night, she goes to a cafe and an Italian helps her to call the waiter. Jane feels sort of uncomfortable for being alone and on the next day, she sees a red glass goblet in the window of an antique store. The owner Renato de Rossi, who is the man that helped her, explains that it is an ancient goblet from the Eighteenth Century and therefore expensive; then he also explains that she should always bargain for a lower price in Venice. Jane recognizes Renato from the previous night and becomes clumsy. Soon Renato woos her but the needy Jane is afraid to love.
This is a stunningly beautiful film with a slim story that nevertheless boasts great performances from Hepburn and Brazzi. Hepburn won an Oscar nomination.
