Los Angeles Times, Feb 3, 1966
The Irishman and the German sex-pot! Stephen Boyd and Elke Sommer make a super-sexy duo on screen in “The Oscar”, one of my favorite Stephen Boyd movies. Stephen never looked so handsome, and Elke looks ravishing as well. The movie “The Oscar” was based on a book by Richard Sale–the same Ricard Sale who wrote and directed Stephen in the 1957 movie “Abandon Ship!”with Tyrone Power, coincidentally. It was filmed in the summer of 1965. This movie has a strong cult following, and we all await either an official DVD or Blu-Ray Release at some point. TCM has played this movie a few years ago, but it deserves an official release!
