    Synopsis


    40 Carats
    Adapted by Jay Presson Allen from the French farce by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Gredy, Forty Carats is a standard-issue sex comedy elevated by the performances of its stars. Fortyish Realtor Ann Stanley (Liv Ullman) finds herself attracted to Peter Latham (Edward Albert) - a man literally half her age. After a summer fling in Greece, Ann and Peter come to a parting of the ways, and that, Ann supposes, is that. Imagine her surprise when Peter comes to visit her back in New York. Though at first dismissed as a fortune hunter, Peter turns out to a financial whiz with a lot more in the bank than his lady friend. Both Ann's mother (Binnie Barnes, whose husband Mike Frankovich produced the film) and daughter (Deborah Raffin) are delighted at the prospect of Ann's romance with Peter -- the only one unsure is Ann herself. Lending his considerable comic expertise to Forty Carats is Gene Kelly as Liv Ullman's ex-husband-who also takes a liking to the personable Edward Albert and encourages the May-December romance. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Charming romance

      I loved this movie when I saw it on TV many, many years ago. I love the way the woman was a strong business woman, who was having difficulties understanding that her love for this man (who is half her age) are only in her head. Listen to your heart is what the movie states. People will talk if they feel it is affecting you - and they don't care for you anyway if they are gossiping about you. Forget all about them. Maybe they are simply jealous that you are in love. Love is love - and it makes you feel alive!! This movie takes you there. Definitely a "chick flick" and also a model for other women. It was released in 1973 and it is still a great movie to watch.

      I ordered a DVD from Beat Buy on line. Price was reasonable. Ordering was super easy all the way through check out. Email confirmed my order and tracked delivery. It arrived via mail in 2 days. No special delivery. I ordered in store delivery of 2 other DVDs at Walmart the same day and they didn't arrive for 2 more days! Was surprised!!
