René Clément’s brilliant adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley stars Alain Delon as Patricia Highsmith’s eponymous antihero who inveigles his way into a group of wealthy American ex-pats, living the high life around Europe. Hired by Dickie Greenleaf ’s millionaire father to watch over his wayward son, the playboy soon tires of his minder, but he underestimates Ripley’s determination to hold on to the lifestyle he feels suits him, with murderous results.
