The Light Touch Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmed on location in Italy, [[Feature~V99596~The Light Touch~thelighttouch]] served as a showcase for MGM's newest female star [[Performer~P1785~Pier Angeli~annamariapierangeli]]. The title refers to the nimble-fingered technique utilized by art thief Sam Conride ([[Performer~P28178~Stewart Granger~stewartgranger]]). Sam is a cog in the wheel of the operation controlled by illegal art peddler Felix Guignol ([[Performer~P206637~George Sanders~georgesanders]]). [[Performer~P1785~Angeli~annamariapierangeli]] plays Anna Vasarri, a young painter who'd like to reform Sam but who is unavoidably sucked into the illicit activities orchestrated by Guignol. Sam endangers Anna's life as well as his own when he masterminds a solo theft, intending to leave Guignol in the lurch. An unexpected jolt of religiosity forces Sam to mend his ways, much to Anna's relief. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
