Alfie Elkins is a selfish cad, repeatedly treating women as objects even so far as using the pronoun "it." Yet you can't help from liking him. Great 1960s period piece set in London. Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adaptation and Best Original Song. Won the Special Jury Prize at Cannes. Inferior remake as Alfie (2004).
