  1. I love THE WORLD OF HENRY ORIENT for the reasons you’ve mentioned: the relationship between Val and Gil, and the way the two of them grow. The film has a charming ending that one might not see coming, and I always rewatch the movie when it turns up on TCM. I read the book and found it oddly unsatisfying–and not as much fun as the movie. Thanks for your review!

  2. Thanks, Susan! I saw this movie when I was a kid and still love it, as you do. I’ve never read the book but really should, even if it ends up being “oddly unsatisfying,” as you write — a description that intrigues me!
