In several scenes Shirley Anne Field (as Doreen) wears a shortie raincoat
(very fashionable in the early sixties), but it is only in
the last of these, when she visits
Finney (as Arthur Seaton) in his bedroom, that she wears it belted.
|Midnight Lace, Dave Miller, USA, 1960||
This film stars Doris Day and Rex Harrison and seeks to be a Hitchcock-style thriller. It's set in London but filmed in Hollywood. Doris Day keeps hearing a threatening voice - or is she going crazy? At one point someone tries to push our Doris under a red bus (stop cheering at the back there!). In this scene she wears a dark red pelerine style raincoat (not too dissimilar to the Lady Hamilton). There are several hooded raincoats and plastic macs in evidence in the bus queue and passers-by in the streets in this sequence. Later in the film Myrna Loy sports a plastic raincoat. (Dave D) Remake for tv, 1981.

|Payroll, Sidney Hayers, UK, 1961
A routine crime drama starring Michael Craig as ruthless villain, Johnny Mellors, who plans a security van heist. Francoise Prevost plays Katie Pearson, whose husband (William Lucas) has passed information to the crooks. Being rather fickle (as women sometimes are), she decides her bread might be better buttered if she runs off with Mellors, and it might even have jam on it if she runs off with the money instead. One of the security guards gets murdered in the heist and his wife, Jackie (Billie Whitelaw), decides that for her there's nothing sweeter than vengeance.
There is a short scene where Katie wears a white trenchmac belted tightly. At the end of the film there is a longer sequence where Jackie wears a belted light raincoat with a fake fur collar. (Dave D)

|Paris Blues, Martin Ritt, US, 1961||
Starring Paul Newman, Joanne
Woodward, Sydney Poitiers and Diahann Carroll Paris Blues captures
well the mood of Paris in the early 60's. In a few scenes Joanne Woodward
wears a Burberry. She looks great in it walking with Paul in the rain,
and when she goes into her hotel room and makes coffee. There is also
great music featuring Louis Amstrong with Serge Reggiani on guitar.
|Le puit aux trois vérités, Francois Villiers, France, 1961||Starring Catherine Spaak , Jean Claude Brialy and Michele Morgan, this play upon the "French new wave movie" told the story of the relationship between a woman and her daughter and the lover. Spaak is to be seen wearing a trench coat early 60's style.

(What a thrill!). (LH)|
|Il posto; Ermanno Olmi, Italy, 1961.||
(Director Olmi won the Festival of Cannes in 1978 with L'albero degli Zoccoli"). Il Posto was is second of third film. It tells the story of an adolescent who needed to work because his family, including a younger brother needed support. His parents wanted him to get a steady job, so he took public examinations to gain qualifications. In Milan, he met a girl who was also taking the examinations. Between the exams they walk together in the street. Stopping before a clothes shop where a trench coat was shown, the girl confesses her liking for trench coats.
In an another scene in a snack bar a young lady wears a white trench coat. Later when the central figure needs a raincoat he is shown trying several styles before buying one. His mother tells him it is too expensive.
Olmi presents the particular relationship and the two characters with skill. Fetishism is here displayed in a singular way - in French through "sous entendu" , and in Italian "ci piaconno gli impermeabili".
|Breakfast at Tiffany's, Blake Edwards, US, 1961|| At the end of the movie there is a very long
sequence (about fifteen minutes I think) starting with Aubrey Hepburn
and George Peppard sitting in a taxi cab. He is in a white balmacaan (like
both men and women wore back then) raincoat. He hands her her cat wrapped
in her white cotton trenchcoat. She stretches her legs out, puts her stockings
and shoes on; then her raincoat and then ties the belt.
They have an argument. She throws the cat out of the taxi into the rain. George Peppard gets out of the taxi to find the cat. She comes to her senses; gets out of the taxi and in a panicky and desperate manner helps him to search for the cat in the rain. The appearance of her cotton cloth raincoat in the rain takes on an appealing shiny wet rubbery look.(Jim)

|The Manchurian Candidate, John Frankenheimer, US, 1962|| This is the original version with Frank Sinatra,
Laurence Harvey, Angela Lansbury and Janet Leigh. A lecture at a ladies'
horticultural society, a scarf, a gun, a lake (the kind people jump into),
and a deck of cards (especially the Queen of Hearts) all feature in this
film. But when Lorraine shows you the Queen of Macs, all you will remember
is Janet Leigh in the raincoat she wears in one scene.

|Le Diable et les dix commandements, Julien Duvivier, La France, 1962||A so-called "film à sketchs", one with several short subjects. There was a fashion for this kind of film in the French and Italian cinema in the early 60's, with several legends of the movie screen - Fernandel, Alain Delon, Danielle Darrieux. Co-starring were Micheline Presle and Mel Ferre, who played the role of a young woman jealous of her friend and in love with the jewels. She wears his black vinyl trench coat with great class.

|Black Zoo, Robert Gordon, USA, 1963||

He starts a new life and meets a girl working for a hairdresser (Josee Steiner). The beautiful love story ends brutally when Frederic is called back to Algeria for the war. Josee Steiner wears a short PVC shiny raincoat. She is absolutely lovely in it and acts with great feeling. Why haven't we seen her more after this ? (Cire Noir)

Lots of plastic raincoats here. A police-officer falls in love with a prostitute. There is a scene in which nearly all the girls working in the street are wearing milky-white and blue transparent PVC raincoats. In another scene, the ex-police-officer walks with Irma to her apartment, she wearing a transparent 'white' PVC raincoat. The sounds when she is mounting the stairs and puts off her coat in her room is ... dazzling...(Paul S)
WK adds: Shirley McLaine is one of those in a translucent plastic mac.
|A New Kind of Love, Melville Shavelson, US, 1963||A few female fashion models are wearing plastic macs. (WK) More enthusiasm from Milo: shows a lot on American Movie Classics (AMC) in the USA... and excellent! esp. two women in transparent coats looking very sexy riding in a carriage with Paul Newman. Paul S adds: "Samantha" is a Spanish version of this title. Features Joanne Woodward, Eva Gabor and Maurice Chevalier in addition to Paul Newman.|
|Circus World, (aka The Magnificent Showman (UK)), Henry Hatherway, US, 1964||
This film stars John Wayne as Matt Masters, owner of a circus-cum-Wild West show in Edwardian times (a bit like Buffalo Bill Cody), who many years before the story starts had an affair with a trapeze artist, Lili Alfredo (Rita Hayworth). Her husband found out and committed suicide by deliberately falling to his death during the act. Lili left the circus abandoning her small daughter, Toni, to whom Masters acts as a surrogate father. Now Masters decides to take the circus on a European tour, but his long time associate, Cap Carson (Lloyd Nolan) realises he really wants to look for Lili. Toni (Claudia Cardinale) is being wooed by trick-rider Steve McCabe (John Smith). Oh, and the dead man's brother Aldo Alfredo (Richard Conte) still works for the circus. Needless to say, Lili turns up, rejoins the circus, but decides her true identity should be kept from Toni. The hell it is!
It was going to be directed by Frank Capra, but he quit after a spat with James Edward Grant, Wayne's long-time personal screenwriter. Hathaway was brought in, but Grant certainly tampered with Ben Hecht's original script. What was intended to be an exciting, spectacular film, emerges as a stodgy mish-mash. It's not so much the lines as the very structure of the screenplay that is all wrong. Wayne blamed Grant and fired him.
There is a brief scene where it is raining heavily and Toni wears a pale yellow slicker. Just prior to this, we see Cap in a black one. (Dave D)
|Wonderful Life, Sidney J. Furie, UK, 1964||Susan Hamphire makes a lovely lady - with all that British class she is great in a trenchcoat. With Cliff Richard in this movie, she offers a "Greta Garbo" look against a North African backdrop. (André)|

|Une Ravissante Idiote, Edouard Molinaro, France/ Italy, 1964||
With Brigitte Bardot and Anthony Perkins.
A typical sixties comedy with a spy subject. I saw it in Bruxelles
when I was 15, and I had to tell told my school friend about it, because
a film with Brigitte Bardot was for the time "osé" ['bold'?]
and sulfurous. Times they are changing!

Julie Andrews wears a trench coat. Co-stars James Coburn and James Gardner. Located in England during World War 2, she played the part of a British woman soldier, of course in love with an American officer, a smash with his British accent and uniform (including trench coat). The best scene was one with heavy rain in tha arms of James Coburn , the trench coat wet (Julie Andrews', that is).
Julie andrews devenue super star dans les années 60 gràce

|Torn Curtain, Alfred Hitchcock, US, 1966||
This is a great one! Julie Andrews wears an off white trench coat as she and Paul Newman try and escape the "Iron Curtain". Julie wears her coat well, buttoned and belt drawn tight, with the collar turned up in some scenes. She wears the coat for a long time in the movie, even rides a bicycle with it on! The only dissapointment to a trench coat afficionado is that it has no epaulettes on the shoulders, but Julie really wears that coat well! I would say it is either a Burberry or London Fog. Rent or buy a copy of the tape, you will not be disappointed! (Ron)
I agree with Ron - Julie Andrews has always given me a thrill! - A superb model of trenchcoat even without epaulettes. (André)
|Made in the USA, Jean-Luc Godard, France, 1966||
The movie stars Anna Karina. I have not seen the movie - it is not available in USA, but it is available on DVD in Europe, on Amazon's France website. I hear that Anna Karina can be seen wearing her beige trench coat through many scenes in the movie. (Ron)
André adds: Jean Luc Godard, le cinéaste par excellence de la nouvelle vague française adulé par les uns, détesté par les autres, est le réalisateur de ce film qualifié par un critique de "thriller socio politique". Il raconte l'histore d'une jeune dame (Paula Nelson), interpreté par Anna Carina, investiguant sur la mort de son mari, dans ce film elle porte un trench coat beige tout a fait classique référence sans doute au cinéma "noir" américain des années cinquante, elle le porte admirablement bien. Ce film se voulait "annonciateur des évènements de mai '68 à Paris, à noter la présence au générique de l'acteur fétiche de la nouvelle vague Jean-Pierre Léaud et également de Marianne Faithfull à noter aussi Jean Yanne qui vient de nous quitter. (André)
|Harper, Jack Smight, USA, 1966||Paul Newman co-stars with lovely Pamela Tiffin and Lauren Bacall. At the beginning Pamela wears a trench coat, first going for a plane and then in another scene a little bit later. Great to see her in it under the California sun.

Leslie H. Martinson, UK, 1967
Raquel Welch stars in this typical tongue-in-cheek Sixties' romp. It gives Raquel a good excuse for several changes of costume, and of special interest to imperistes (i.e. mac-lovers) is the delightful little white mini-trenchcoat that she wears in a longish sequence on a train in the later stages of the film. It doesn't have any buttons - all the fastenings are straps. (Dave D)
|Accident, Joseph Losey, GB, 1967||

H adds: All the nice pics I can find feature nylon overalls - I think- not rainwear. Anybody help?
|The Helicopter Spies, Boris Sagal, US, 1968
This is a good example of how, if you take a third-rate two-part episode of a TV series well past its sell-by date, cobble it together and give it a cinema release, you will get a fifth-rate film. The series in question is "The Man from UNCLE" starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuriakin. The reason for its inclusion here is that in it Carol Lynley wears an orange mini-length raincoat for quite a long sequence towards the middle. Eventually she gets the chance to test just how waterproof it really is. One suspects 'not very', as the answer is never revealed. (Dave D)
|The Producers, Mel Brooks, US, 1968||
In that extremely funny satire which is also the first Mel Brooks film and probably his master piece, Lee Meredith appears in two scenes as a weird secretary in a white shiny pvc raincoat with black collar (typical sixties type). One she takes it off to dance and the second time she speaks to Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder hidden under a table. (Cire Noir)
|La Ragazza con la pistola, (Girl with a pistol), Mario Monicelli, Italy, 1968||With Stanley Baker. Monica Vitti wears a very shiny black plastic mac in many long scenes.

|Night of the Living Dead, George A. Romero, US, 1968||
I think it must be Judith O'Dea in the trenchcoat, scampering about the graveyard pursued by creatures apparently possessed of poor taste enough to desire her flesh. I can only make sense of it all by assuming it is reallly the trenchcoat they are after - which is truly a comestible item, shown off here, in spite of everything, to mouthwatering effect. (Clare)
