Story of a Italian Prince who falls for an Arizona singer while she is performing in Italy. 12 years pass and the actress (Lana Turner) is now a major Hollywood star, and the Prince (Ezio Pinza) is now exiled, at which point they resume the romance.
Lana Turner never looked more beautiful. Ezio Pinza was right off his success from "South Pacific." Turner and Pinza don't make a good couple, and it is somewhat evidenced by the scenes together. Pinza has ample opportunity in this film to show his Operatic talents, in many cases Lana Turner stands around as beautiful window dressing.
Marjorie Main appears in a somewhat rare non Hillbilly role, and pulls it off quite well. Barry Sullivan appears as Lana Turners Hollywood paramour, but that plot line is not followed through with very well.
This movie is in the public domain, and as such can frequently be found on TV, DVD and Video. Despite that fact, it still carries the MGM name well. Beautiful costumes, sets, musical scores and beautiful Technicolor.
