A wonderful fairy tale of the misadventures of a beautiful but temperamental Neapolitan peasant, Isabella, when she meets the ill- tempered Spanish Prince Rodrigo Ferrante y Davalos. The King of Spain has ordered Rodrigo to choose a wife among seven Italian Princesses, but he is smitten by the lowly peasant. With the help of both witches and saints, Isabella conquers the heart of her Prince after many amusing events--including an outrageous dishwashing contest of the peasant against the Princesses.

This movie is so highly underrated, it features two larger than life stars, Sophia Loren and Omar Sharif, at their best in a charming fairy tale story. Sophia never looked more beautiful on screen, this movie reveals the zenith of her beauty; and it goes more deeper than just beautiful people, the leads bring life to their characters with unparalleled charm. The magnetism of the two stars and the charming "Cinderella" story are further enhanced by a truly magical score by Piero Piccioni and a lovely title song by Roger Williams. This movie should get a major DVD restoration, it is one of the most charming and magical movies ever made.
