Yes, 55 years ago (yesterday) this movie premiered with the amazing Alain Delon, who is arguably the most beautiful man ever to appear on the big screen. 2001’s more famous The Talented Mr. Ripley, with Jude Law, Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman tells the same story by Patricia Highsmith. I like that movie a LOT but Purple Noon is amazing in a different way. I watched it for the first time last night and I see why many people prefer it. I saw just recently, The Two Faces of January, another Highsmith triad on Netflix and now you can see Noon on Hulu Plus, if you have it. Watch.
