Kay Stanton, her husband Neil and son Tommy live on the French Riviera. While at the port, when her husband was on a trip she meets an American naval officer, and they begin an affair. Kay knows she loves her husband Neil and tries to end the affair, but she and Mark fight over this and she shoots him accidentally. Her next door neighbor, Daphne, takes Mark's body and throws it in some dump. Later she calls the police to tell them where she dumped him. Neil is called by the police so he can help them with an ensign who is an amnesiac victim recovering from a gunshot wound; this man happens to be Mark. He regains his memory and recognizes Kay, but keeps quiet when Neil introduces them. Neil has a deep feeling that Kay and Mark know each other, but knows Kay really loves him. The theme song is sung by Johnny Mathis and is precious in all aspects. You will enjoy this movie tremendously. Written by

When I saw this film when it was released, I was twenty, and I promised myself that one day I would sip a glass of wine on the terrace of the beautiful Colombe d'Or restaurant in St. Paul de Vence, just as Jean Seberg and her sailor did. Several years later, there I was, and so I will always remember this film fondly not only for the initial enjoyment of seeing it, but also for the pleasure it provided me when I got to fulfill the romantic dream it inspired.
