Indiscreet - S. Donen 1958

Throughout the film I kept wondering to what extent this storyline would have been feasible today. It seems to me however much contemporary romantic comedies target living happily ever after, this intent focus on marriage itself - rather than merely living happily - is quite outdated.

Basically, Bergman's rather unsympathetic main character is kept at bay by eternal gentlemanlike Grant's made-up wife, to prevent her from bullying him into wedlock.

On the plus-side : Sassy New Look dresses and glamorous London exteriors.
