Today's feature is a bittersweet comedy about the romance between an eager to perform singing matador(Peter Sellers) and Barcelona's most beautiful and petulant woman(Seller's then-wife Britt Ekland). It's definitely a change of pace from the Inspector Clouseau films for Sellers while Miss Ekland(who was better known for her Bond-girl looks than her acting ability) gives the best performance I've seen from her. She's also looks her most beautiful IMHO. Another James Bond series veteran Adolfo Celi(Emilio Largo from "Thunderball") has a supporting role.

Saw a move the other night, 10 Little Indians, had the Goldfinger girl without the gold paint.
I’ve seen that one too. It also has a “non-official” Bond girl, i.e. Daliah Lavi who played the Detainer in the 1967 “Casino Royale” spoof with Peter Sellers. It’s a fun mystery.

Don't know about Sunday afternoon, but last night I did catch the TCM showing of the 2010 re-release of "Metropolis", the original sci-fi epic from 1929 with lots of restored footage and a great rerecording of the original Sigfrid Huppertz score which carries the story - two plus hours worth watching....
