Romanoff and Juliet (1961)

Notes: 2/27/11
John Gavin was so hot, but the Russian accent just doesn't work.
Sandra Dee was so pretty.
Peter Ustinov was very talented. Directing, writing, and acting.
Akim Tamiroff is very memorable in his role.
The United Nations footage at the beginning is cool.

Review: C
A talented cast, particularly writer-director-star Ustinov, keeps this riff on Romeo and Juliet only slightly entertaining. Sandra Dee and John Gavin make a gorgeous couple, though Gavin's Russian accent just doesn't work.
