Was this before or after she was reduced to doing television?

A fabulous movie when taken on it's own. A real lame duck when the Algren novel that is it's source is taken into account.

I love the way Capucine's hair acts, it's so expressive!

Nice but when it comes to slapping she's no Joan. You can here this poor bitches shoes lift off the ground and come back down.

Capucine was a stunning beauty. I've never seen her in anything other than WWOTWS and "North to Alaska" and she certainly wasn't a deadbeat actress.

Capucine showed comic skill in What's New, Pussycat and also The Pink Panther. She reminds me of Anouk Aimee because of her elegance and detachment.

Once and for all, how does one pronounce Capucine?

Capucine's end was extremely sad and tragic. She jumped from her penthouse balcony. She was so lonely and depressed that she couldn't take it anymore. She had a cat and I think a dog.

Capucine and Laurence Harvey belong in the "stars who had no chemistry" thread for their performances in this movie...
|by Anonymous||reply 15||10/02/2013|
Well, Harvey was a cold, nasty man. And why anyone would cast him as a Texan is anyone's guess.
Fonda is kind of fun in this film. Capucine is gogeous, but as miscast as Harvey.

R14, not penthouse, but 8th floor. The penthouse was occupied by the Yul Brynners, and later, one of his ex-wives.
Capucine was good friends with Audrey Hepburn since their pre-celebrity modeling days. She lived just minutes from Audrey and Rob Wolders' villa in Tolochenaz, and was a frequent house guest. She was, however, an exhausting presence in her declining years, with Audrey and Rob often finding themselves acting as counselors and nursemaids to the bipolar actress, who was increasingly talking suicide and made several attempts to off herself before finally succeeding in 1990.

Capucine's family history is shrouded in mystery and according to some, the source of her lifetime of distress.

Didn't Capucine "date" Dirk Bogarde?
Was she a closet case?
|by Anonymous||reply 19||10/02/2013|
After his death, Bogarde's family said she was his beard. She was said to be bi. Had a two year affair with William Holden who was married to Brenda Marshall at the time.

Laurence Harvey was a major fruit cake. Frank Sinatra's butler, who was black, said one time Harvey came over to Frank's palace ,and he was a sleazeball. Harvey whispered in the butler's ear, you are a box of chocolates that I would love to taste.

AND she made "Trog". I'd rather have gone to television roles.

Didn't Dirk Bogarde also claim to have been in love with Judy Garland?

Capucine almost ruined Robert Preston's marriage. Well, he almost ended it for her -- I can't imagine that it was on the greatest footing when they began their affair.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||10/04/2013|
R17 Your info is misleading. I knew Capucine the last 16 years of her life.
She lived in the penthouse, therefore she jumped from the penthouse, terrace. I knew the home well.
Yes, she did visit Audrey regularly. Robbie of course was about. She didn't stay with them, she just drove over - about a 15 minute drive.
To suggest Capucine was a hindrance to Audrey is unfair. They were dear friends.
Also it is not true they knew each other from "modeling days". Yes, Capucine was a Givenchy model, but Audrey didn't model. They met when Audrey came to Givency to be fitted for film costumes.

R6 Thank you for the Joan slap. Laughed out loud. That other actress may have lost a molar.
Nice follow thru, Joan.

Quite right, R28; it was a lousy marriage, which is why I back-pedalled. But he was talking about leaving his wife for Capucine.

I heard that the Stan demanded an inordinate amount of rehearsal before the scene was filmed.

That's Betsy Palmer, R27. Believe it or not, since it looks nothing like her appearance in subsequent years.

Love Anne Baxter as Teresina! Bad Mexican accident and a black wig she borrowed from Bette Davis, who wore it in "Beyond the Forest"!

Laurence Harvey has an unusual bio. Lithuanian-born, RADA-trained bisexual or closeted gay man; frequent liar who tried to hide his Jewish origins. His daughter Domino became a bounty hunter and died age 35.

Betsy Palmer was in Queen Bee, but she's not the actress Joan slapped.
I believe her name was Lucy Marlowe and she was never heard from again after this film.

How else would you expect a character named "Jo" to act?

The real Domino Harvey was a consultant to the film Domino about her. She was played by Keira Knightley. It was directed by Tony Scott. Edgar Ramirez who played Choco in that film had an affair with the real Domino during the filming. She was very masculine and appears in the film briefly at the end. She died just before the film was released.

So who are ladies linked with Capucine?

Did they have lesbian sex afterwards?

Capucine was quoted as saying that Barbara had a "lady friend" when they were filming Walk on the Wild Side, so she didn't hit on her.

Laurence Harvey was friends with Elizabeth Taylor and Noel Coward, both of whom seemed to regard him with affection.

Laurence Harvey didn't like Capucine.
During the filming, Capucine objected to filming kissing scenes with Laurence Harvey, feeling that he was not manly enough for her. Harvey reportedly replied, "Perhaps if you were more of a woman, I would be more of a man. Honey, kissing you is like kissing the side of a beer bottle."
