Storyline

Caroline DuLac, a baroness and concert pianist, steals three jewel-encrusted Faberge eggs from a San Francisco museum. The eggs were demanded as ransom for her kidnapped fiancé. She boards a plane for the Latin American city of Ladera, as per instructions, and is met by Mike Chambers. Caroline first believes that Mike is one of the kidnappers, until a mysterious man in a trench-coat tries to kill her, and Mike comes to the rescue. They are then both captured by a band of Mexican bandits, who also may or may not be part of the scheme. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

This was Audrey Hepburn's first TV movie since a 1957 production of Mayerling, and the last feature-length production in which she would take a starring role. According to biographies of the actress, she reportedly agreed to do this obscure telefilm just for the fun of it. See more »

Goofs

A delightful movie
2 October 2004 | by (California, U.S.) – See all my reviews

I enjoy this movie more each time I watch it. It at it has all of the elements that make for a good romantic comedy.

The main characters - portrayed on the one hand by the inimitable Audrey Hepburn and on the other by the still sleek Robert Wagner -are as lively and believable as ever. We are given as a bonus the added abilities of Jerry Orbach as the mysterious bad - good guy.

All of the elements of the classic romantic comedy are in evidence here.

There is a great cast. There is incisive and clever dialogue. There is the element of danger without being so dramatic that one forgets that one is watching a comedy. There is the hate / love relationship that develops, with the viewers permission, into a love / hate and then a love only relationship.

Best yet it is all folded up in the course of an almost unbelievable story. Surely the mark of a good Romance.
