The best that can be said for this episode from the old Kraft Suspense Theatre anthology series is that it plays like a theatrical release rather than a cheap TV concoction. Beautifully photographed, making good use of the Universal back lot and stock footage of Italy, with a surprisingly good musical score and excellent sound quality. An American expatriate (Young) who is a penniless sculptor takes up with a wealthy married American (Foch) on holiday and her young, spoiled daughter (Crawford, a Tippi Hedrin lookalike and the producer's daughter). Tragedy predictably ensues, and the ending has a nice twist. Peter Lorre, who died shortly after filming this, plays the sculptor's roommate. This was made around the same time Lorre starred in Roger Corman's "The Raven." Not much suspense, but a Hitchcockian feel should keep up your interest. And be sure to check out the ladies' various costumes, hairdos, headgear and bathing apparel. They're to die for. Die laughing, that is.
