DIRECTOR: DAVID LEAN
UK, 1955

Jane (Katherine Hepburn), a lonely American spinster on vacation in Venice and hoping to find romance, succumbs to a passionate, bittersweet affair with Renato (Rossano Brazzi), a married Italian antique dealer. A visually enchanting valentine to the glories of the city as well as an endearing love story, Jane’s transformation from gloom to joy is echoed in an evolving wardrobe designed by Rosi Gori. A key item is a certain pair of red mules designed by Pompei in 1955 and reproduced in more recent years by Giuseppe Zanotti. “The film had an enormous effect on tourism. I remember the head of a hotel chain coming up to me and saying, ‘We ought to put a monument up to you.’”—David Lean. (102 mins.)
