Interlude  [DVD]June Allyson (actor)
Rossano Brazzi (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 86 min
Quality: Very Good
A virtually unwatchable romantic drama, based on a James M Cain story, featuring a miscast (too old, too prissy) June Allyson, who falls for married conductor Rossano Brazzi in Munich. Instead of having a wonderful sensual adventure, she wastes time trying to decide between Brazzi and unappealing doctor Keith Andes.
Cult figure Douglas Sirk provides heavy-handed and humourless direction, and the substandard plot compounds these failings. Munich looks nice in CinemaScope, though.
Romantic drama starring June Allyson and Rossano Brazzi. While working in Munich, Helen Banning falls in love with the formidable conductor Tonio Fischer. On discovering that he is married she leaves him, but they are fated to meet again.
