Storyline

Mike Hamilton, a Philadelphia lawyer, comes to Naples to settle the estate of his long estranged "black sheep" brother. Once there, he discovers that the deceased has left an eight-year old little boy named Nando, who is being raised by Michael's sister-in-law Lucia Curcio. Mike immediately disapproves of Nando's Italian-style (in other words "lax") education. To make matters worse, Lucia happens to be ... a sexy nightclub dancer. This is too much for a puritan like Mike and the only solution in his eyes is to have the boy brought up in the States... Written by Guy Bellinger

Trivia

Just before the courtroom scene, Lucia dramatically and tearfully denounces Mike's and his lawyer's attempts to trick her and steal the boy, to which Gable's character remarks sarcastically, "I forgot, who won the Academy Award this year?" In fact, Sophia would become the first foreign actress to win an Oscar (Best Actress) for a foreign-language film, Two Women (1960, It.) the following year. See more »

fitting finale to Clarke Gables' career
23 August 2002 | by (Las Vegas Nevada) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful movie starring two of filmdoms' greatest stars-Clark Gable and the beautiful Sophia Loren. Set in Naples and the island of Capri this is one attractive movie.Great story line and excellent music and a wonderful performance by the master himself Vittorio De Sica. Add to the cast a young Italian actor by the name of Marietto playing a wise-cracking street kid from Naples and you have the perfect afternoon treat. Though this was Gables' second last movie before the ill fated Misfits (a movie I would rather forget)he looks in excellent shape and still has that twinkle in his eye that made him a star for over 25 years. This movie is just magic. Enough said.
