Wealthy industrialist Robert Talbot arrives early for his annual vacation at his luxurious Italian villa to find three problems lying in wait for him. Firstly, his long-time girlfriend Lisa Fellini has given up waiting for him to pop the question and has decided to marry another man. Secondly, the major domo of his villa, Maurice Clavell, has turned the estate into a posh hotel to make some easy money while the boss isn't around. And, finally, the current guests of the "hotel" are a group of young American girls trying to fend off a gang of oversexed boys, led by Tony, who are 'laying siege' at the outer walls of the villa. Talbot, to his own surprise, finds himself becoming an overprotective chaperone. Written by
The wealthy American executive Robert Talbot (Rock Hudson) comes to Italy in a business trip and anticipates his annual vacation a couple of months before the usual month of September. He invites his Italian girlfriend Lisa Helena Fellini (Gina Lollobrigida), who had decided to get married with her British fiancé Spencer (Ronald Howard), to go with him to his villa and she immediately calls off her engagement with Spencer.
When Robert arrives in his villa with Lisa, he learns that his butler Maurice Clavell (Walter Slezak) has been using his property as a hotel for six years while Robert is in the United States. Further, the "hotel" is booked with six female teenage students that are controlled by the tough Margaret Allison (Brenda De Banzie). Robert fires Maurice and asks him to send the tourists away. However, Margaret slips on a champagne cork and the girls are forced to stay a little longer.
When four American male students arrive in Robert's villa, they flirt with the girls. However Robert protects them and advises one of them, Sandy Stevens (Sandra Dee), telling that easy women do not get married since men do not take them seriously. Sandy tells Lisa what Robert told her and Lisa changes her behavior and leaves Robert alone.
"Come September" is a dull, unfunny and disappointing romantic comedy despite having Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida in the cast. The story is awful and it is absolutely incoherent that a businessman with the profile of Robert Talbot be so stupid.
A successful tycoon like him, instead of sending the teenagers away to stay alone with his lover, nurses them. How could Robert be so naive and trust on a despicable scum like Maurice for so many years? And how can he be serious with a shallow and promiscuous character like Lisa? My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Quando Setembro Vier" ("When September Comes")
