The Helicopter landing place at the end of the movie is not at Ischia, but at neighbor island of Capri, the nearby lighthouse is the Faro De Carena. The "H" for Helicopter landing was simply painted on a parking ground. See more »
When Pamela wants to go swimming at sunrise, Wendell's shadow on the pier is way too short for time of sunrise. (At the end of July in Ischia you'd get this kind of shadow around noon and 14:30.) See more »
At the 70s, people took much more care of the characters than today !! It is not a comedy where you can laugh aloud. But you have a smile on your face all the time you watch this movie ! In a way, this movie makes you happy !! Especially Jack Lemmon is a great actor !!
