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....

maybe a flop then... but its my favorite movie of all time
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

actually this is the movie that made me fall in love with Joan Crawford and Franchot tone.this movie is kinda like a Cinderella story except it has a twist in the end. Or actually like another pretty woman only to me better.Franchot tone plays as the handsome postman and Joan Crawford plays as the beautiful hooker/prostitute.I'm not saying anything else to spoil it. i watch it every night before i go to bed.and think about it everyday.I'm hoping that it will soon be on DVD.nobody can ever say they are a true Joan Crawford fan and say they hate this movie.Joan Crawford shows her true ability as Anni.this movie is a true love story!
