To like this film, you have to have an automatic appreciation for the early 1960s...
Swivel sticks in sexy drinks, tinkly lounge music, bachelorette pads, the bossa-nova, Ann-Margret: all touchstones of the 1960s, all included here as three American honeys prowl for lovers in Madrid. Not particularly witty, and not very useful as a travelogue (there's an extended stop at a Spanish art museum, yet most of the overall action takes place indoors); however, the breathless beauties (A-M, Pamela Tiffin and the cynical, jaded Carol Lynley) are worth-watching, as are Gene Tierney (in a small but commendable part) and rock-solid Brian Keith (always a pleasure, even when he's a maybe-playboy). It's a decent, if talk-heavy piece of fluff, a remake of "Three Coins in the Fountain" with songs, and good watching on a rainy afternoon. Finally available on DVD April 2014. *** from ****
