Have read "The Story" twice, not quite sure what exactly this movie is about and why it is so dramatic. A man swimming through pools and a wedding, anything else? A modern day version would be people calling the cops, aiming guns and of course being in CT, many a skeeter.
Burt Lancaster did some good films, is this one really one such?

No wedding in the movie, just pools. Not sure why you think a modern-day version would be like that. It seems to miss what's taking place in the story.

Probably 40 years since I've seen this but I recall one of the backyards he swims through was occupied by nudists, which made it a bit racy for those times - even though the nudity was only suggested and cleverly concealed. I'll have to pick it up as soon as the price drops.
