Charming!

Warning: Spoilers
An agreeable Italian romantic comedy, lensed against the background of Sienna (with side excursions to Pisa and the Leaning Tower) and its famous medieval horse race, namely the Palio. The photography is attractive (thank you, Giuseppe Rotunno) but even more attractive is our lovely star, Diana Dors. (I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Dors, and she was just as charming in real life as she is in the movies). Anyway, in this movie, she wears a very attractive variety of cleavy costumes designed by Colasanti. Director Luigi Zampa keeps the lightweight script (mostly by Zampa himself, Michael Pertwee, Ennio de Concini, Liana Ferri and Raffaele Giannelli, although IMDb lists five or six more contributors) moving at a very pleasant and delightful pace. And the movie also boasts a charming music score by Renzo Rossellini. In the English version, released under the title. The Love Specialist, the principals, namely Diana Dors, Vittorio Gassman, Franca Valeri and Bruce Cabot do their own dubbing. Oddly, Gassman was so much in demand that he was not available to dub the Italian version and his voice was supplied by Emilio Cigoli!
