A good shot, too - but not a bulls-eye this time - clues so far plus new info...

 

A would-be writer makes a living as a reporter.

 

The reporter pursues different stories and meets a wide array of people and situations while also dealing with personal problems.

 

A fashion story was the inspiration for this film.

An interesting guess and movie, *visualfeast*, but it's not *The Eyes of Laura Mars*

 

Clues with note added:

 

A would-be writer makes a living as a reporter.

 

The reporter pursues different stories and meets a wide array of people and situations while also dealing with personal problems.

 

A fashion story was the inspiration for this film. But the film isn't about the fashion industry.

 

The reporter's life is a jumble filled with glamorous women, parties, and problems with his girlfriend. Added to all that, a bogus story and the tragic and shocking loss of a friend.

One thing I will give away, *LP*, this ain't a Doris Day/Rock Hudson movie! I think I might've taken things a little off the track with the "inspired by a fashion story" clue...will elaborate...

 

This movie signaled a new decade. It glimpsed beyond the decade, tho, since it seems to have foreseen, among other things, the coming of "bling."

*cmvgor* - right decade, wrong movie...but an interesting guess (always enjoy Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward together) -

 

This one is an award winner and was a sensation in its day.

 

My fashion reference was about the "big fashion story" that was Balenciaga's "sack dress"...the director of this film was inspired by what he saw in that particular style as a contrast between beauty and emptiness - beautiful on the outside, empty on the inside...

Visual and ladyeve- Great Job both of you. My computer has been giving me trouble so I didn't see your clues for *Bonjour Tristesse* - I've always been very fond of this film since I was a kid. I thought Jean Seberg was great in this one. I would have guessed correctly, but so glad both of you have seen this one and it was used on the thread.

Didn't mean to interrupt, ladyeve- sorry- carry on.

This was one of those movies I was too young to see when it was out, but when I finally did, was not disappointed. I've watched it twice in the last year on one of the movie channels (I don't think TCM) - and like it very much. Was happy to discover this was the movie *VF* had picked.

 

I'll be back w/movie.
