Sea Wife | ★

Last night Ann and I caught this campy 1957 flick starring Richard Burton and Joan Collins. The following from user reviews at IMDB pretty well sums up my sentiments:
  • Joan Collins is a nun (!!) shipwrecked on an island with Burton. This movie is hilarious and sexy.
  • I haven't seen it for years, but I still use Burton's growling "I love you, Sea Wife" to make my wife laugh.
  • Shallow, but certainly entertaining on a minor scale.
  • The nun's curious reluctance to divulge her vocation unnecessarily drags out these proceedings (and makes Sister Collins out to be something of a tease, which is touched upon fleetingly).
My wife reminds me of how I commented on Burton's suits.. yes they were fabulous :)

On a scale of 10 I give this movie for campiness, good scenery and for the memories.

  1. I've heard of this movie! Joan Collins as nun ... that's a far cry from Alexis Carrington (which is what I always think of when I hear her name)
