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.

Seems a little too straightforward, but ill guess Sweet Bird of Youth.

 

Didn't see this but that was my guess too.

Actually it's now at Warner, so no.

Lord Jim

 

Lavi is Israeli, but appeared in how many Italian movies?

The rest of the clues are reaches(like my GI ration spaghetti sauce)

Bruce you have not commented on EXODUS.

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?

Guess: The Long Hot Summer

 

Reasoning: "The Fugitive Kind" = Joanne Woodward, "Spaghetti sauce" = Paul Newman, "It all comes out in the wash" = the scene with the dirty rug Joanne tells Paul he has to clean, "Richard Brooks directed 'too'" = Brooks directed "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" the same year, which also deals with a Southern family ruled by a larger than life patriarch living in the same house and which also starred Newman.  Not quite sure how clue #2 fits, but I'm going with it anyway.

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.

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.

I'm thinking the "Italian muse" is a red herring. I'm looking for concubinage of actresses by Italian directors...(obviously I don't mean it literally)

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?
