Starring Gregory Peck, Sophia Loren, Alan Badel
Following the runaway success of CHARADE, director Stanley Donen brought together another pair of megastars for a similarly swanky, Hitchcockian blend of romance, comedy, and international intrigue. With Gregory Peck as an expert in ancient hieroglyphics unexpectedly thrust into to the middle of a nefarious assassination plot and Sophia Loren (clad in eye-popping, Dior-designed couture) as an oil magnate’s mistress who teams up with him, ARABESQUE is a chic, enjoyably tongue-in-cheek espionage adventure steeped in swinging-sixties style.
