the car is the star
- don letta
Like most anthology films, this one is uneven (the exception to my memory is Flesh and Fantasy). The score is first rate as is the beautiful Rolls, the star of the film. The three stories include an elitist Ingrid Bergman who decides to use the car for war duty, a horse race, and some gangsters playing with a beautiful but empty Alain Delon, and a not beautiful, but full of herself Shirley Maclaine. All in all not too good.
yellow rolls (correction)
- kevin sellers
I was in error when I called Anthony Asquith a "brilliant stage director." Apparently, he was pretty much limited to film. Which makes his uncinematic direction all the more inexcusable. Sorry for the mistake.

Fairly enjoyable trio of short films, all of which have in common a sad tone and the eponymous car. Terence Rattigan's screenplay is first rate. It's funny, touching, and always intelligent. And, wonder of wonders, it doesn't take itself too seriously. The acting, from a great ensemble cast, is also excellent (with the glaring exception of Alain Delon who, at this early stage of his career, is pretty much your standard Euro pretty boy.) The problem is Anthony Asquith who, like many brilliant stage directors, cannot handle cinematic action. In these three movies he's got the worlds of horse racing, mobsters, and war to deal with and none of these three worlds comes visually alive. The only thing that stands out, pictorially, is the yellow of the car. Let's give it a B minus since, as we all know, movies are a director's medium.
The Epitome of Elegance.
- Frank Harris Horn
Academy Award winners, Ingrid Bergman, Rex Harrison, George C. Scott, Shirley MacLaine and Art Carney lead a star-studded cast in this pre-World War II comedy-drama involving a yellow rolls-royce as the main centerpiece in this picture of passion, intrigue, adventure and love as the car is passed on from owner to owner in three different stories. They don't make them like this anymore. Filmed on location in England, Italy and Austria. Also starring Omar Sharif, Jeanne Moreau, Alain Delon, Wally Cox, Joyce Grenfell, Moira Lister, Edmund Purdom, Gregoire Aslan, MIchael Hordern, Guy Deghy, Isa Miranda, Roland Culver, Lance Percival, Harold Scott & Richard Pearson.
Terrific escapist fare with a stellar cast
An over-the-top star-studded Big Movie with gorgeous cinematography, memorable music and a cast that is in on the fun. Whether cruising at Ascot or with partisans in Europe during World War II, this is one Rolls that certainly gets around. Perfect for a rainy afternoon or an evening in front of the fire. Inexplicable that this one is not yet on video or DVD. In the words of the song introduced here, "Forget Domani" and instead spend a couple hours with The Yellow Rolls-Royce.
Great classic movie with Rex Harrison.
A wonderful movie that made a yellow rolls-royce the focal point of the movie. For all the old movies transferred to DVD's why not this classic.
I want to see this wonderful movie again!
I have waited for years to see this delightful movie again. I watched it as a child with my grandfather and have never forgotten it.
Best Car Show Ever
- Bonnie Brown
I had never heard of this movie and surfing one day cauht it when the first segment with Rex Harrison was amost complete. Must see all of it from beginning to end - please reschedule on TMC ASAP, I'll tape it if that is the only way once can get a copy of the movie. Would love to purchase a new DVD if ever made available. Thank you. 166 residents live here at San Clement Villas by the Sea, movies everyone night - all of us in the right age bracket to enjoy this one (75-105).Bonie J. Brwn
The Yellow Rolls Royce
- Michael Williams
I saw your last screening of The Yellow Rolls Royce on TCM, loved it, recorded it and had the wretched recording automatically deleted by our poxy state of the art TV (sky+).Had a individual committed this crime, I fear I would now be facing criminal prosecution for my revenge.So, imagine my frustration. Please take pity on a thwated Rolls Royce voyeur who has only his own blue over black Rolls Royce Sedanca de ville P11 to remind him of the Yellow contemporary.
Yellow Rolls Royce DVD wanted
- Richard Lewis
I am a member of the Rolls Royce Owner's Club in the USA (RROC). We have over 9,000 members and the subject of "The Yellow Rolls Royce" comes up frequently. Why can this movie not be available in DYD? This is the 100th anniversary of the Rolls Royce. Many members would enjoy this title. Thank you.
