    First Edition. First edition of Huie's pulp novel set in London, "This is Lt. Commander James Monroe Madison's kind of war. The batteground--luxury hotel suites. The ammunition--steaks, liquor, girls. The fighting--cheek-to-cheek and no holds barred. As the Admiral's personal aide, he's in the right spot to launch an all-out attack. But he picks the wrong target when he tries to seduce. The Warner Archive Collection Blu-ray of The Americanization of Emily is a terrific encoding of this handsomely filmed gem. Even in Blu-ray B&W films don't always look right, but Philip Lathrop's crisp images have that original theatrical feel. The solid audio supports the (plentiful) dialogue and Johnny Mandel's music track.

    The lively but somehow slightly distasteful The Americanization of Emily stars James Garner as a WWII naval officer who happens to be a craven coward. While his comrades sail off to their deaths, Garner makes himself scarce, generally hiding out in the London flat of his lothario navy buddy James Coburn. Garner falls in love with virtuous war widow Julie Andrews (the "Emily" of the title), but 6/ The Americanization of Emily is a war story morality play set on its ear, where, instead of valor, cowardice is held up as an ideal. Notice I did not lead with the classic quotation from Charles Madison (James Garner) concerning Americans and how they don't need to apologize to Europeans for their typical 'Ugly American' behavior. For one thing, while I agree the Europeans are no one to.
