SUNDOWNERS, THE (1960)

Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr play husband-and-wife nomadic sheepherders in 1920s Australia, a couple who've led and loved a footloose life but who now want to settle down on their own homestead — assuming Mitchum can leave behind his rambunctious ways. Mitchum and Kerr's natural, knowing way with one another, not to mention their earthy sexual chemistry, make them one of the movies' more believable screen couples. Peter Ustinov — former sea captain, current gentleman tramp — is along for the ride. DIR Fred Zinnemann; SCR Isobel Lennart, from the novel by Jon Cleary; PROD Gerry Blattner. UK/U.S./Australia, 1960, color, 133 min. NOT RATED
