The Americanization of Emily

The great James Garner and Julie Andrews lead this comedic drama set during World War II about an American naval officer who, somehow, is able to live it up during wartime. That lifestyle is challenged however when, during the build-up to D-Day, he becomes love-struck. From screenwriting legend Paddy Chayefsky (who would go on to write Network amongst others).

Garner generally delivers a satisfactory performance. Douglas plays his admiral strictly for laughs.

Time Out

In one fell swoop, writer Paddy Chayevsky celebrates American hedonism and attacks the puritan conscience that turns fun into cynicism.
