Swell!

Arabesque is directed by Stanley Donen and collectively adapted by Julian Mitchell, Stanley Price and Pierre Marton from Gordon Cotler’s novel The Cypher. It stars Gregory Peck, Sophia Loren, Alan Badel, John Merivale and Harold Kasket. A Panavision/Technicolor production with music by Henry Mancini and cinematography by Christopher Challis.

Hieroglyphics expert David Pollock (Peck) is thrust into a world of shifty political intrigue involving a Middle Eastern Prime Minister, a beautiful spy and a sinister rich businessman.

There’s quite a bit wrong with Arabesque, with white actors made up as Arabs, a scatter-gun plot, weak finale, a barely threatening villain and Peck is no action hero! Yet if you can just run with it, to enjoy being in the company of the stars? Then there’s fun to be had here.

Part comedy, part thriller mystery, Arabesque zips along at a decent clip and Donen inserts memorable scenes along the way. From a wonderful shower sequence to chase me perils at a Zoo and a building site, there’s truly a great will of spirit involved in the production. Donen also at times chooses to shoot the movie through a kaleidoscopic prism, and uses canted angles to accentuate David Pollock’s confusion. These are nice touches, as is Mancini’s Eastern flavoured musical arrangement.

Peck may be no action hero type actor but his sense of fun here, and his all round classy charm, makes it very easy to root for him. Loren looks fabulous, a real sex-bomb pouting away with a glint in her eye. Not all of the Christian Dior costumes suit her character, but Loren, herself seemingly having a great old time of it, comes through the picture with flying colours. Elsewhere the performances are merely adequate, with Badel’s villain coming off like a weak Peter Sellers clone!

So a mixed bag for sure and the shadow of Donen’s wonderful Charade three years earlier looms large at times, but it’s an enjoyable enough ride while it lasts. 7/10

Fun little espionage-romance-thriller featuring the wonderful duo of Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren. Gets a bit confusing and still don’t quite understand the point of the cipher to begin with, but has some thrilling scenes and a solid finale. Nothing terribly memorable and certainly has shades of Charade (same writer and director) released three years prior, yet still worth checking out. **3.5/5**

Good Film but a bit dated.
This film is a bit dated (1966) but the plot twists and turns keep you watching. With Gregory Peck knocking off one liners and Sophia Loren for eye candy, this film is a good one to catch if you have never seen it before…The villains in the film are a bit over the top and a tad campy but this only adds to the charm of the film.

competent and also pretty forgettable
Considering that this film featured Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren, I expected more than I got. While not a bad film, it is pretty ordinary and ultimately pretty forgettable. There are a few cute moments here and there but ultimately, the film just fizzles instead of sizzles. I saw that someone compared this film to an earlier Donen-directed effort, CHARADE. They are pretty similar, I guess, when it comes to the chemistry and the writing–and it’s pretty obvious that the director is trying to replicate the previous film. There are just so many similar elements, though Sophia Loren is playing the role played by Cary Grant in the previous film and Gregory Peck is taking Audrey Hepburn’s! Both films tried very hard to be cute and sexy,…but CHARADE seemed more magical and original and ARABESQUE seemed a lot like a re-tread.
