Last night we watched “The Sundowners” with Robert Mitchum, Kerr and Peter Ustinov. Directed by Fred Zinneman. The film was made in 1960 and might have been one of the first glimpses of Australia that many Americans ever saw. Mitchum filled in when Gary Cooper was too ill to begin shooting.
Deborah Kerr was nominated for one of her SIX leading role nominations but alas, she never won an Oscar. Hard to believe with so many great roles she played.
The film also co-stars Glynis Johns and Dina Merrill. Merrill was heralded as the new Grace Kelley.
