Don't Make Waves Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

British director [[Performer~P100565~Alexander MacKendrick~alexandermackendrick]] helmed this farcical romantic comedy set in Southern California. Carlo Cofield ([[Performer~P86429~Tony Curtis~tonycurtis]]) is a footloose tourist who meets Laura Califatti ([[Performer~P10829~Claudia Cardinale~claudiacardinale]]) when she accidentally edges his car off the highway. Laura invites Carlo to her home; he seems interested in her, but discovers she's already involved with swimming pool magnate Rod Prescott ([[Performer~P75183~Robert Webber~robertwebber]]). The next day, Carlo hits the beach and nearly drowns in the ocean, until he's rescued by comely sky diver Malibu ([[Performer~P69935~Sharon Tate~sharontate]]). Carlo blackmails Rod into giving him a job so he can stay in California and pursue a romance with Malibu, but he soon finds himself torn between her and Laura. Don't Make Waves also features a theme song by [[Performer~P10022~The Byrds~thebyrds]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
