Featuring a fantastic all-star cast, including Burt Lancaster, RitaHayworth, and Rod Taylor, "Separate Tables" seems to be a forgottenmasterpiece. It was nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including Best Pictureand Best Actress, and won two…including one for the magnificent DavidNiven. I highly recommend this movie!
David Niven, who was never given the credit he deserved for his enormoustalent, gives the performance of his career in "Separate Tables." Insteadof playing the perpetual nice guy, he is a definite shady character. Hedeceives everyone into believing that he’s a reputable person, especiallyshy Deborah Kerr. But soon, it is revealed that he’s not the person heappears to be, with possible disastrous outcomes…

Separate Tables was an adaptation of a play by Terence Rattigan. David Niven won an for Best Actor, and Hiller won for Best Supporting Actress. Hiller had the best reaction ever to winning an Oscar: "I hope this award means cash - hard cash. I want lots of lovely offers to go filming in Hollywood, preferably in the winter so I can avoid all the horrid cold over here."
