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
The film was shot in and around Naples and Sophia Loren had to sneak into the country to make the movie, because the Italian government was investigating her Mexican "marriage" to Carlo Ponti, who was still legally married to another woman. See more »
Mike and Lucia order up stiff drinks for each other at the bar. Mike orders a bourbon drink for Lucia and she orders a Campari based drink for Mike. However when each of them grabs the bottle of liquor to top off the others drink the bottles are switched. Mike's gets topped off with Burbon and Lucia's with Campari. See more »
Truly a delightful film! Sophia was never funnier. And the little boy is a treasure. Clark and Sophia were a delight to watch. I've seen Clark in comedies before, but for this film Mr. Gable was at his best! Naples was as beautiful as Sophia. Sophia and Naples! It was like being on vacation watching this film.
I would recommend watching this if you haven't seen it. It's worth watching more than once too!
