Two Weeks in Another Town

Two Weeks in Another Town is a 1962 drama film based on a novel by Irwin Shaw, directed by Vincente Minnelli, and starring Kirk Douglas, Edward G. Robinson, Cyd Charisse, Claire Trevor, Daliah Lavi, George Hamilton, and Rosanna Schiaffino.

The film depicts the shooting of a peplum movie in Rome by a team of decadent Hollywood stars. It contains several references to a previous and successful Minnelli's movie, The Bad and the Beautiful, starring also Kirk Douglas, and the story was seen by many somehow as a reelaboration of the past relationship between actors Tyrone Power and Linda Christian and producer Darryl Zanuck.

Described as a camp melodrama by some, as the most "minellian" of Minelli's films by others, and even as a cruel portrait of American film industry or Minnelli's best homage to European cinema, this movie is either praised as a masterpiece or despised as an obvious sign of Minelli's decadence.
