Snapshot, 1964: It’s the BMW or bust for Claudia Cardinale
In the Venice Film Festival award-winning flick Sandra, Claudia Cardinale plays Sandra herself — an Italian lady returning to her childhood Tuscan town for a memorial to her father, years after fleeing the War. As nice as her on-screen husband’s gleaming white BMW 507 may be, it won’t take long after her arrival for Cardinale’s character to switch allegiance — to her younger brother (played by the handsome French actor Jean Sorel), no less, with whom she shared a secret romance while growing up. For Michael Craig, there’s only one thing to dispel those raising suspicions, and that’s a spirited drop-top drive through Tuscany in the fabulous 507. Who needs a woman, anyway?
