5.0 out of 5 stars Professor D Pollock March 31 2014
By dpollo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As my name is the same as the protagonist, the movie is of interest to me, and I figure it is about as close as I will ever get to Sophia Loren. Intriguing story too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arabesque Jan. 10 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Gregory Peck, Sophia Loren and Alan Badel (absolutely superb as the villain). More plot twists than could be imagined. The movie is great fun and Sophia Loren shows that she can act and Gregory Peck is perfect for his role as a professor very much out of his league and comfort zone. Terrific ending. Loved it.

One of my favourite movies - good acting, wonderful clothes (why don't we see that anymore?), lots of action. It has one of the best sound tracks.

2.0 out of 5 stars poorly done Aug. 15 2013
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Perhaps it was the era that this movie was made in, perhaps it was the cheesy performances by Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren, but this was a silly movie that I would not recommend to anyone. A collector of older movies might like this, but we found it disappointing and actually threw it out when we finished watching it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Movie May 8 2012

A great movie to see with Sophia Loren playing a fantastic part - I did not grow up in this era but I appreciate the cleanliness of these types of movies. Wonderful to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars review an order Nov. 6 2011
By dah man
I had ordered this same dvd once before and received a copy that would
not play on my DVD player but would on my labtop

Frustrated I tried again as I wanted a copy of this and behold,
the new package was delivered promptly and was in brand new
condition and played well.

I would, without doubt, order from this distributor again and
probably shall, if there are titles I am after.

4.0 out of 5 stars Secret of the cipher Aug. 25 2011
An arabesque is an artistic motif with repeating forms and patterns. It seems like the ideal title for the movie "Arabesque," a fun if repetitive little thriller about a professor thrown into international intrigue. The middle of this movie is light on plot, but there's plenty of action, romance, large machines, and a rather surprising twist at the end.

At the behest of an Arab prime minister, Prof. David Pollock (Gregory Peck) is sent to spy on a corrupt businessman named Beshraavi (Alan Badel). Beshraavi needs a mysterious cipher decoded, and he keeps David a prisoner while he works on it. What's more, he plans to kill the professor once he's done.

But David is able to escape with the help of Beshraavi's mistress, Yazmin (Sophia Loren) -- who turns out to have a secret agenda of her own. Now the professor must weave his way through enemies at every turn, along with the mystery woman he can't quite bring himself to trust. And if he doesn't decode the cipher in time, the entire world could be in jeopardy.

"Arabesque" is a movie that doesn't know what to do with its middle section -- it starts off strong, spends a long time spinning its wheels, only to rise up and blossom again in the last twenty minutes. But if "Arabesque" is not a strong political thriller, it's certainly an enjoyable popcorn movie.

The middle section of it isn't bad, just repetitive: scrabble for cipher, fight, follow, rinse, repeat. And they put in some... interesting padding to spice it up, such as a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment where a doped-up Peck meanders down a freeway, playing "matador" with the cars. That was a WEIRD scene.

So what does it have that's good?

2.0 out of 5 stars Son of Charade! July 14 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is ALMOST as good as its immediate predecessor with Grant and Hepburn. It's without a doubt Gregory Peck's best comedy, Roman Holiday or no. Stanley Donen again pairs two mega-stars who normally don't make movies together, (though in the case of Grant and Hepburn, they SHOULD have!) and produces good chemistry. Peck has great, clever lines and so does Loren in spots. However, there are a couple of scenes in the movie that keep me from giving it the full five or four star treatment.
This is a Peck, may he rest in peace, that you haven't seen before. His flippant, tossed-off lines suit the situations the writers have put his character in to a tee. He plays a professor reluctantly helping a slimy character, who KIDNAPS him to acquire his services, to decipher a piece of paper with a hieroglyphic inscription on it that a lot of people seem to be after. That hieroglyphic ISN'T exactly what concerns them, though!
Loren and the general intrigue, drag the poor man through being drugged out of his mind on a well-used freeway riding a bicycle, being abducted by yet more shady types, (a short-haired hipster and his gang), and evading armed arabs in a helicopter on horseback. Peck's character, however, dilutes any sympathy he'd get for all this by holding a knife to the exquisite Ms. Loren's throat early in the film! What's even weirder is that Loren SMILES at him after he does it since they were both trying to escape the mansion Loren was being held in. The whole thing was HER idea!
All the while, Peck throws out bon mots like there's no tomorrow, making you wonder why he didn't make more comedies, (Peter O'Toole, George Hamilton and Candice Bergen would make you think the same thing in breakout comedies THEY'VE made!
