Impossible to believe formula fluff garbage with aging stars. Marlena Dietrich at 56 has to decide between two suitors a broke Italian aristocrat (like herself) or an unsophisticated American millionaire. Vittoria De Sica (56) turns down an 18 year old millionaires daughter to be with Dietrich. Give me a break.
Then there is the feel good old sophisticated Europe versus the brash hick nouveau riche United States element.
The color and filming is well done in this complete fairy tale.
Watch only if you are fans of these aging stars.
