Films: P is for...

Penelope

This isn’t the dodgy Euro-sexcom with Ingmar Bergman’s daughter flogging hooky paintings, but yet another caper comedy, in which dissatisfied wife Natalie Wood robs various business pals of hubby Ian ‘The bloke with the indeterminate Celtic accent off of Thriller episode Death in Deep Water’ Bannen, confesses all to psychiatrist Dick ‘That’s our Hitler!’ Shawn, but gets away with it by dint of being butter-wouldn’t-melt Natalie Wood, until she arouses the interest of detective Peter ‘Compadres’ Falk. All good fun, but a flop at the time meaning Wood shied off from films for a while afterwards.
