On Days Like These – The Italian Job

Written by Christopher • June 9th, 2009

The classic intro from the movie The Italian Job (1969) starring Sir Michael Caine and Noel Coward. The character is cruising a Lamborghini Miura through the Italian alps down to the city of Turino while Matt Monro is singing On Days Like These.

So dreamy. So perfect. Wishing I was there right now. Check out this website for a complete list of all the filming locations and analysis of them, very impressive.
