“Filmmaking on the Riviera” (1964) with Alain Delon, Jane Fonda, & Lola Albright

“There is one place for everything glamorous and daring, and that is the Riviera….”

Which is exactly how this MGM Studios Promotional Film for a film by Renee Clement starring Alain Delon, Jane Fonda, & Lola Albright begins. (You love it already!)

Alain Delon, a favourite style star, is at his prime as the ridiculously handsome criminal on the run from the French Underground ( Yikes! The French Underground!), and Jane Fonda (“a foremost star of Europe”) is fiestier, sexier, and younger than you’ve ever seen her! Amazing!

One of the most interesting aspects is definitely getting to see some of the filming process! Check out how they shoot some incredible action right in the sea! No CG this time Movie!

The film was released as ‘Les Félins’ in Clement’s home country France, while in the US and UK it was released under two DIFFERENT names: “Joy House” (US), and “The Love Cage” (UK).

Promotional shorts like this one for MGM Studios, were not uncommon for the 60s, but you gotta love the special oomph the devil they chose to narrate this has with the gusto and punch he adds to his script. Maybe that’s the best part, but see for yourself!

I like that they mention “creating a spine chilling thriller is a painstaking, often dangerous business…”, as we at The Eye of Faith experience this almost everyday creating spine chilling thrillers in our minds for you to enjoy!

Hope you enjoy!

Sincerely,
