    My random guess for the day, Sweet Bird of Youth (1962). It's MGM, written by Richard Brooks (who was a director too), Geraldine Page plays Alexandra De Lago which sounds Italian to my ears.

    Apologies Ken. I actually did comment. Then I turned off the computer, went to bed, and now poof. Long story short, no. Knowing TT and Preminger, this is certainly a possibility. One day.

    That first clue, talk of Joanne Woodward had me thinking of multiple personalities, but since Three Faces of Eve has just been released, I'll take a wild stab for Sybil. Unseen by me, I can only speculate as to how it fits in with the clues. It features Woodward, and scored by Oscar Winner Leonard Rosenman, I don't believe he has any other TT credits.
    Yeah, it's a TV movie, but a well regarded one, is it beneath Twilight Time to release it? According to IMDB, MGM/UA holds the video rights.

    Can this film be seen as a star making role for an actor or director?

    Hmmm. Fairly sound. I'm glad people get The Fugitive Kind (1959) import. Notice I put the "too" in quotes. That is significant. Does it resemble a different three letter word? Back to Summer (1958), on the face this is the answer. Yet it isn't.

    It has to be Two For the Road. Am I right?

    Is it Paris Blues?

    Duke Ellington is the composer. Should be new to TT.

    Co-stars Joanne Woodward. The tie-in to The Fugitive Kind.

    Paul Newman is the Method Actor and the spagetti sauce.

    Richard Brooks directed "TWO"----Sydney Potier in The Blackboard Jungle and Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

    Also: Paris Blues was a UA release.

    Could it be The Brothers Karamazov (1958)?

    Okay, there's one for today: The Defiant Ones

    Clue 1: "The Fugitive Kind"
    Clue 2: Sydney Poitier sings unassisted, "walking the line" referring to the character's feelings toward the other
    Clue 3: Richard Brooks directed Sydney Poitier "too" in two films.

    For a second I thought it meant One Touch of Venus, but that's Universal.

    I'm going to build on that, Bibi Andersson was in Quintet with Paul Newman,and with Poitier in my guess-

    Duel At Diablo (1965)

    Does the story take place outside of the United States?

    Disappointed that this isn't Long Hot Summer which would be a great TT title.

    Today's question: Exclusive of food endorsements, did any of the principal performers find substantial success outside of acting?
