The Americanization of Emily

A cynical American naval officer (Garner) is assigned a lovely young English widow (Andrews) as his driver in this comedy set in London during World War II. Despite their differences they fall in love, but his superiors seem to have nasty plans for him involving D-day!

An interesting look at the conflict between Americans and Brits while preparing for D-Day. Also a "mod" (I use mod because James Coburn is in the film) anti-war film. Shot in the 1960s it is in black and white. ~Mike
