American Madeline, a no-better-than-she-has-to-be (and then only when pushed) traveler arrives in Naples. She has an eye for men and a penchant for getting by on her wits---a 1954 term for body---and soon has a well-meaning (dumb) young composer, Ciccio providing her with room and board. But she has a male counterpart in Ciccio's friend, café-singer Nino, who recognizes her for what she is and he decides to intercede on behalf of his friend. Black Widow Madeline welcomes him into her parlor, in a manner of speaking to get past the censors, and the next thing Nino knows, he has abandoned his wedding plans with sweet-young-thing Lisa, and runs off with Madeline. Lisa and Ciccio are left with wringing hands, and Madeline and Nino become an American/Italian version of the "Battling Bickersons" or "The Honeymooners", with none of the fun. Written by

Turner later recalled that the studio offered her a choice between Mogambo and Flame and the Flesh . Turner wrote, "The Mogambo script didn't appeal to me, and I elected to do Flame and the Flesh . A big mistake!" The role in Mogambo eventually went to Ava Gardner. See more »
All these things come pouring out at once..Pier Angeli and Marissa Pavan co-starred with Lana. Pavan in the 1956 ''Diane''. The two actress's were sisters. Are Lana's films as a body of work being preserved as they would have been had Lana lived a bit longer? The American film Institute should have a copy of all her films. Museum of Modern Art should have a copy of each of her films. Lana Turner should be able to be studied by all of the children that are two years old today.....when said children are surprised to see one of her films for the first time,,, and hear the soft velvet voice.
My copy of ''Flame and the Flesh'' is green/yellow in color, the sound is fair. With poor visual quality..I think it is a bit funny. Was intended to be funny. Richard Brooks. ''Cat on a hot tin Roof''. Same director,, and as ''Cat''can be funny at times. So might ''Flame and the Flesh'' if we could only see it.
Lana Turners work must be preserved as was Davis,Crawford,Taylor,Stanwyck,. The woman worked over thirty years and she was constantly working for over that period of time. I would love to say more about the film,,, but it seems to be lost. A 60 year old film no more, lost. ............. Lana Turner deserves better. Find and restore this film. Do it while her daughter is still alive and able to be a part of the celebration.
