Storyline

Count Armalia believes that the luck of birth is all that separates the rich from the poor. To test his theory, he sends Anni, who is a singer in a dive, to a ritzy resort for two weeks. With fancy new clothes and ersatz status, Anni decides that she likes the rich life. But with time running out, she needs a rich husband and Rudi is the one she chooses. Only it takes longer than two weeks for Rudi to dump his fiancée and propose to her. In the weeks that she has been there, she finds that she loves Giulio, the postman with the small house and the donkey cart. But will she give up love for wealth....

Trivia

During filming, an electrician fell from the catwalk high above the set, narrowly missing the film's star, Joan Crawford. Shooting was temporarily halted while the man was rushed to hospital. Crawford refused to resume production until she was assured that the man would be fully cared for, that he would remain on salary, and that his family would be provided for. Crawford also called the hospital each day afterwards for reports on his condition. See more »

A hidden jewel in the acting crown of Crawford.
2 September 1999 | by (nj,usa) – See all my reviews

Considered a flop in the past(it is the film that got Joan labeled box office poison, despite the fact that the film before it, Mrs. Cheyney, was a big hit), viewed today, it is incredible how much Joan gave to an obviously butchered script. Her scenes alone in her "ivory tower" of a room, especially when she notices that the birds have gone from their nest, are acting in it's highest form. Strangely, this is one of a number of films where she plays the working girl that we DO NOT feel much sympathy for her.
