See Europe with the
King of the International set (me).
Not to mention the star's star,
Ann-Margret

By Woody Allen

--------------------------------------------------------------

LONDON FOR LOVERS. London is great. I'd call it the Athens of Europe, except it doesn't apply. Right now, it's the center of what's happening abroad. The clothes, the music, the girls in those little skirts and boots, the boys with the hair - it's still there. Ann-Margret, a queen pussycat wherever she goes, is seen here at the Victoria Memorial, where the old lady is surrounded by the figures of Victory, Courage, Constancy, Truth, etc.

ROME FOR REVELERS. Where it not for the fact that it's totally inappropriate, Rome might be called the Athens of Europe. Here, in this combination of little village and international metropolis, one can stand on cobblestone streets gazing rapturously at statues while the perfection of the moment is enhanced by the knowledge that at any moment you may be killed by a small car. Here, our girl reposes on a grassy knoll nearby; not seen in this picture - the hordes of horny Romans who ogled out of camera range.

Here is Ann at Ostia along the Tyrrhenian Sea, emerging from the foam like Botticelli's Venus, who, if I remember correctly, was not in Rome when I was there (at least her service said she was out).

The Colosseum is good for a short stroll. One can stand in the middle and mentally re-create ancient Rome complete with bloodthirsty crowd, wild beasts, gladiators and martyrs. I accidently stood there re-creating ancient Sparta and got no thrill at all. Then someone helped me and it was heaven.
