"I don't have to make sense! I'm Italian",

"Come September" (1961) is a light, funny, and delightfully old-fashioned romantic comedy which is as charming as the colorful dresses the girls were wearing during "Age of Innocence," a period that extended roughly from the end of World War II into the mid-1960s, and as pretty as the Italian seaside where American millionaire Robert Talbot (dashing Rock Hudson) has a luxurious villa. For six years, he's been spending his vacation there in September with his Italian girlfriend, Lisa Fellini - a stunningly beautiful and sensual Gina Lollobrigida. One year, he changed his plans and arrived in July. To Talbot's utter surprise he found out that his devoted major-domo, Maurice (Walter Slezak stole all his scenes as an employee who has his very own ideas of loyalty and devotion) , has been making nice money by turning his villa into a popular and posh hotel "La Dolce Vista" once his employer leaves for America. Lisa is tired of being a " September girl" and decides to marry another man. On the top of all, Talbot finds himself chaperoning a group of six American teenage girls vacationing in Italy, and fighting a generational war with the group of four American college boys whose hotel reservation he canceled and who settled in a tent just outside the villa and began courting the girls. Talbot's biggest concern is Tony (Bobby Darin), the leader of the gang, a medical student who wants to seduce young and innocent blonde Sandy (Sandy Dee), the psychology major. The film is a nice way to spend two hours. Darin sings the song" Multiplication" that he had composed for the movie and I wonder if the song was one of the reasons Dee and pop idol Bobby Darin fell in love with each other in real life and were married just after the filming was over. Hudson and Lollobrigida have a nice chemistry and there is also their dance together. While watching her dance, you would wholeheartedly agree with Tony that never 206 bones that a human body includes were constructed so perfectly. To quote him further, "She is a beaut; you don't see many like that". So is the movie - they simply don't make them like that anymore.

Casual Sex Farce

"Come September", handsome Rock Hudson (as Robert Talbot) goes to his luxurious Italian villa, to hook up with gorgeous part-time lover Gina Lollobrigida (as Lisa Fellini). Suddenly changing plans, Mr. Hudson surprises Ms. Lollobrigida by arriving two months before their annual rendezvous. Looking for more commitment, Lollobrigida has made plans to marry another man; but, she agrees to meet Hudson for one more fling. Their love nest is disrupted by entrepreneurial "major domo" Walter Slezak (as Maurice Clavell).

Since Hudson never appears before September, Mr. Slezak has turned Hudson's villa into a hotel for sightseeing teenage girls. Hudson takes a fatherly interest in them, most notably sunny Sandra Dee (as Sandy Stevens). And, he tries to keep Ms. Dee and her girlfriends away from a group of amorous young men, most notably singer Bobby Darin (as Tony). And, yes, that's Joel Grey (as Beagle) years before his overnight success in "Cabaret" (1972). Eventually young and old have a meeting of the minds.

This was Mr. Darin's first feature film appearance as an actor; despite being slightly miscast, he is good. Darin's single "Multiplication" was an accompanying hit (in the film, Hudson has a cute line about sexual mathematics). In real life, Darin and Dee (already a big movie star) married after an off screen romance. Oddly enough, on screen, the young lovers are no match for Hudson and Lollobrigida. The production is first class, with photographer William Daniels highlighting the beauty of the sets, locations and Lollobrigida.

Pretty Soon You've Got A Room Full Of Rabbits!

I had a hard time finding this delightful film on DVD, so I ordered it through a local video store, and it arrived on the late Sandra Dee's birthday, how fitting. I hadn't seen it since it aired on television a few years ago, and I'd forgotten how humorous and entertaining it was.

Robert Talbot (Rock Hudson, proving his comedic talent)has a beautiful Italian villa he only uses during the month of September, which also fits his beautiful local girlfriend, Lisa (Gina Lollobrigida)for that same month a year. Lisa is so frustrated that she is preparing to marry an English gentlemen (Sidney Howard), but she reconsiders when Robert decides to fly in in July. What the business man does not know is that his butler, Maurice (Walter Slezak, who nearly steals the show), has been using the villa as a hotel. Talbot finds his place swarming with tourists, including a group of college girls. And then the college boys make a landing, headed by Tony (Bobby Darin) who immediately sets his sights on Sandy (Sandra Dee), while Talbot cunningly tries to keep these young fellows away from the girls, which leads to more funny and romantic complications.

This movie is fantastic all around. From the breathtakingly gorgeous Italian scenery, to the costumes, wonderful chemistry between the actors, and the music (with Darin crooning one of his own tunes, "Multplication" in a dance sequence), "Come September" is priceless. The electricity between Darin and Dee is so apparent, and this is a fitting tribute to both of them, and the fact that they married after filming wrapped makes the viewing of the film all the more enjoyable. Some hilarious lines too! "Those boys are quite capable of dividing and multiplying!" "Do it to others before they do it to you!" "There's a body missing! A body I don't want to have missing!" I'd come to this villa every month of the year!
