A disappointment at the box-office, summed up by Ann-Margret in her auto-biography: "Nobody wanted to see me as a woman of the world. They wanted Kim from "Bye Bye Birdie". Elvis had the same problem. Audiences didn't want us to grow up." See more »
To like this film, you have to have an automatic appreciation for the early 1960s...
Swivel sticks, tinkly lounge music, bachelorette pads, the bossa-nova, Ann-Margret: all icons of the '60s, all included here as three American honeys prowl for lovers in Madrid. Not particularly witty, and not very useful as a travelogue (there are two stops at Spanish art museums, yet most of the 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). It's a decent--though talk-heavy--piece of fluff, a remake of "Three Coins in the Fountain" with songs, and good watching on a rainy afternoon. Not available on video or DVD, but give it time. *** from ****
