Mitchum and Kerr - Simply Divine - And I finally got a copy
18 December 2010 | by WillaCronkiteSee all my reviews

Watching the two of them in this fine, nostalgic re-pairing is like visiting with an old married couple still much in love! I have always loved both of these actors' work individually, but Mitchum and Kerr together are something rare and special on screen. If you have ever seen Heaven Knows Mr. Allison or The Sundowners or The Grass Is Always Greener then you know what I'm talking about! You just don't find chemistry like this anymore in the actors today. I was fortunate enough to find a great DVD by searching Bing for the title and movie lead. It is a treasure my own husband and I watch again and again. I am so glad that these true screen icons were able to work together one last time before leaving us.
