    The lengthy sequence at the windmill is also awesome. :O)

    The third most awesome thing about “Foreign Correspondent” is Robert Benchley. I tried really hard to get a good shot of him with an umbrella.

    I like the chase through the umbrellas a lot, but it doesn’t last very long. The windmill sequence is long enough to build tension as well as just looking really great.

    I saw the movie again not long ago and enjoyed it very much. Still, I was surprised to read that it was nominated for 6 Oscars.

    And I love the bonus picture. McCrea looks so debonair, but is that_really_what the well dressed Englishman is wearing this season?

    @Miriam: Given the current fad for sleepwear as daywear, I think we must regard him as extremely fashion forward. ;-)

    Current fad? As in people in 2012 wear sleepwear? Huh… it’s been a birthday suit for me since I was 16. lol
