Name the pre-1970 film

Recommended Posts

I may not be on site much this week, so I'd like to wrap up any threads I'm responsible for.

 

This was an Oscar nominated film with a very beautiful theme song. It's also one of my most favorite films, ever. The leads are A+.

This movie, set in India, was actually filmed in Pakistan. At that time, the cast stayed in the only suitable hotel in the city.
