Storyline

Three stories about the lives and loves of those who own a certain yellow Rolls-Royce: **First purchased by the Marquess of Frinton for his wife as a belated anniversary present, the Marchiness finds her own use for the vehicle - one which prompts her husband to sell the car in disgust. **Gangster Paolo Maltese's moll, Mae, thinks the Rolls is a "classy" car in which to tour Paolo's home town in Italy. When Paolo is called away to the States to finish some "business", a bored Mae takes the Rolls on a spin through the country, enjoying both the sights and the handsome Italian photographer who crosses her path. **By the outbreak of World War II, the car has come into the possession of socialite Gerda Millet. While on her way to visit Yugoslavian royalty, Gerda and the Rolls become (at first) unwitting and then (eventually) most willing participants in the Yugoslavian fight.

Quotes

Mae Jenkins: [Looking indifferently at the leaning tower of Pisa] So it leans. So a lot of things lean.
Paolo Maltese: [Turning to Mae] You ever heard of Galileo, maybe?
Mae Jenkins: Sure I have heard of Galileo.
Paolo Maltese: [Turning to Joey] She ever heard of Galileo?
Joey Friedlander: Nah...
Paolo Maltese: Five-six hundred years ago, this Galileo dropped two stones off that tower, one big one, and one little one.
Mae Jenkins: So?
Paolo Maltese: So he proved the law of gravity or somethin'. I don't know.
Mae Jenkins: And brained a couple of citizens, maybe. Big deal.

Truly a Great Movie
8 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a young girl when my mother took me to Radio City Music Hall to see this wonderful movie. It's about the travels of this Yellow Rolls Royce from owner to owner. Each owner has their own adventures with this car, but it is life changing for each of them. Each owner is so different in their character from the one before. I enjoyed the scenery, it was beautiful, acting was great, and the story is wonderful. This movie is filled with some of the greatest stars of that time period. A must for the older films viewer and the young ones too. I don't think you can buy it on VHS or DVD. I've tried to find it but I can't. Hope to be able to buy it one day!
