March 2013

Patricia Highsmith
from the internet
The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith is our choice of a Classic for March.

The French Film version
Several films have been made from Highsmith's novels, including Talented Mr. Ripley. I saw the 1960 French version, entitled Purple Noon.

From IMDB Here is wat the author had to say about it:
Author Patricia Highsmith, on whose novel "Plein soleil" was based, expressed satisfaction with the film, which she called "very beautiful to the eye and interesting for the intellect," and with Alain Delon's performance as Tom Ripley. She was, however, disappointed with the film's ending, calling it "a terrible concession to so-called public morality."
