FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P17148~Delmer Daves~delmerdaves]] directs this cross between a travelog and a routine romantic drama set in Italy. The story begins when beautiful librarian Prudence (a misnomer, played by [[Performer~P57082~Suzanne Pleshette~suzannepleshette]]) decides to take off for Italy. She works in a women's college and was brought up short for recommending a racy book to one of the students. In a huff, she opts to go to the land of opera and find out if Italian men are as romantic as legend maintains. Once there, she runs into Roberto ([[Performer~P82881~Rossano Brazzi~rossanobrazzi]]), who is likely to prove the legend true, and meets Don ([[Performer~P19596~Troy Donahue~troydonahue]]), an American running away from the love of his life, Lyda ([[Performer~P19096~Angie Dickinson~angiedickinson]]). Between the glamour and the setting, [[Performer~P17148~Daves~delmerdaves]] has geared this fluffy tale for the more innocent-minded teen set. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
