In 1960 this film did not receive audience attention because there were other film being shown that the public wanted to see, like "Psycho" and many other films. Most Sophia Loren films were not as popular in America and so Carlo Ponti brought his wife back to Europe and she made a very successful film, "Two Women" which won her an Academy award and brought Sophia great notoriety. In this picture, Sophia plays the role as Princess Olympia who is a very wild and beautiful young lady who gets into all kinds of trouble. Sophia rides her horse one day and an American named Charlie Foster, (John Gavin) and his automobile scares the horse and the Princess falls to the ground and she plays games with Charlie making believe she is hurt, but she really likes him and wants to spend the night with him in a lodge. Charlie has no idea this pretty gal is a Princess and they both get along very well, with her sleeping in his pajamas and her waking up and the bottoms of the PJ's are missing. This is a great comedy and Maurice Chevalier, (Prince Philip) gives a great supporting role as Princess Olympia father along with Angela Lanwsbury, (Countess Lina) who is a gossip and trouble maker getting into everyone's private lives. Michael Curtiz directed this picture and he was a famous director who produced many great films.
