Did You Know?

When Raoul Walsh sold Hudson's contract to Universal, he retained the rights to the actor for one picture. This obligation was settled a decade later when the director was given a percentage of the profits from "Come September."See more »

location of film, 25 June 2005
Author: itapeter-kay from United Kingdom

We love the film and have watched it countless times. Last year we were lucky to find out where the location of Mr Talbot's "villa" was. It is in reality one of the most luxurious hotels in the world dominating the the hill overlooking the bay of Portofino in the Italian Riviera. The staff in the hotel confirmed that the film was shot there. However, when we view the film, the shots from the terrace down to the harbour don't quite line up, so we imagine that another location was also used. If you ever get to Portofino, it is worth the climb to see the view and the coffee wasn't as expensive as it was down in the harbour. Best wishes Peter and Ita Kay.
