Movies by the numbers.

Movies by the numbers:

One, two, three: Berlin is the epitome of political and economic polarization. A microcosm of that polarization is the life of American C.R. MacNamara, known as Mac to his friends. He is Coca-Cola’s head of West Berlin operations, although he feels he deserves to be Coca-Cola’s head of European operations based in London. Mac’s wife, Phyllis, wants him instead to get a steady and stable job back in head office in Atlanta. His West Berlin staff are all still used to treating him like their old master, the Fuhrer. His life goes into a tailspin when he hosts Scarlett Hazeltine in his home for two weeks. She is the seventeen year old spoiled Unlike most of the stops she’s made on her European trip, Scarlett seems to like West Berlin and stays finds a boy who is a Communist and the play is to get him to become a capitalist.  The cast includes James Cagney.
