Passion, intrigue, adventure, love-- everything happens in the yellow Rolls-Royce, a luxury automobile that ties together three stories as it passes from owner to owner. In the first, an aristocrat with a penchant for the racetrack discovers his wife has a penchant for backseat amour. Then a moll takes a spin down lover's lane in the Rolls while her mobster boyfriend is busy rubbing out the competition. Finally, an imperious widow purchases the car and drives straight into danger as she helps an anti-fascist escape the Nazis.

I can't say much different than what other people have written already, but I wanted to post something because this is a lovely film that other people would enjoy. I'll definitely watch it again.

I like this movie because it tells 3 totally different stories and ties them all together in a nice little Rolls Royce bow. Each story is deeper than you first see. If you watch it and really think about the characters, you'll see what I mean. I watch it once every few years and still get a kick out of it.

I was unable to sit through the last half of this movie. There was nothing that could hold my attention, apart from the lead story where Rex Harrison returns the classic vehicle to the dealer because it would always remind him of the time he found his wife in an adulteress embrace inside the vehicle. Did someone think this was going to be a modern version of the Canterbury Tales with the car as the setting for stories across time and space and generations? Thank God I didn't have to spend any money on this library rental.

So what’s the lesson here? Rolls Royces make great aphrodisiacs but lousy marriage counsellors? Director Anthony Asquith fails to inspire his dream cast to deliver more than adequate performances while some lovely technicolor backdrops do nothing to elevate Terence Rattigan’s insipid script. Billed as a “comedy” this is pure late-night television fodder that quickly runs out of gas before blowing all four tires.

AN UNREALISTIC BUT FUN FILM.

Skip It - Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964) 122 min. Interesting premise of following a yellow Rolls-Royce from owner to owner and allowing the viewer insight into each character and event that befalls the character and car. Unfortunately, the film’s three stories are not very interesting in and of themselves. Forgettable film from the mid-1960s despite the likes of greats such as Ingrid Bergman, Rex Harrison and Shirley MacLaine. Regardless, thanks to OPL for ordering this classic film. We need more of the oldies...
