From the Archives: A Little Romance ( 1979 )

Laurence Olivier is looking rather serious, but dapper nevertheless, in this scene from A Little Romance ( 1979 ). This charming coming-of-age film is about two youngsters who steal away to Venice with the aid of an old pickpocket - Olivier. They wish to kiss on the Bridge of Sighs which, according to legend, means they will stay together forever.

  1. It was a very different performance from Olivier’s other works if that period,such as MARATHON MAN and THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL.

    1. It was, but then I love how versatile Olivier was. He gave a great performance in "Love Among the Ruins" ( 1975 ) just a few years earlier and that, too, was a very different role for him.
