Once is not Enough (1975)


The plot at least was ahead of its time, with adultery, father fixations and lesbianism to the forefront in a film featuring Kirk Douglas 15 years after he’d filmed ‘Spartacus’ in Spain.

It is in Málaga that Kirk seduces a rich serial divorcee in order to give himself and his daughter the kind of life he thinks they should be accustomed to.

First of all we see him walking one half of two dogs in the marina of Puerto Banús, and then they are looking at a postcard of the hilltop village of Casares, crowned by its church and ruined castle, while the real thing is right behind them.
