Weekend Event (Berlin): One, Two, Three

Posted on vintage_ads this morning:

Well, what's a tribute to Berlin without the movie One, Two, Three? :)

This 1961 film stars James Cagney at the top of his game (ironically, it was his last film before he came out of retirement for 1981'a Ragtime), snapping off dialogue with crackling energy. The Cold War one-liners were fast and furious as Coca-Cola's Man in Berlin angled for a prestigious promotion while dealing with his boss's daughter, who married a Communist! Zounds!

Anyway, the movie was filmed before and released after the Berlin Wall went up, so it was somewhat of an anachronism on its debut!
