Storyline

Daniella, a fashion model, goes to Rome to replace a model who's been murdered. Once there, she meets two men, Count Castellani, whose clothes she'll model, and Karl Bauer, a reporter in the hotel room next to hers. Castellani gives Daniella the spotlight, which prompts jealousy from another model. Is he merely trying to seduce her? It's soon apparent that he has other plans as well: the line of clothes is a cover for smuggling and perhaps espionage. Daniella may be in danger - one model is dead already. Is Bauer to be her protector, or is he after something too? Is anyone who they seem? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Confusing spy film with young Elke!
2 September 2004 | by shepardjessicaSee all my reviews

This is basically a mess with a lovely as always Ms. Sommer and good jazz score. Decent location work, but the script is all over the place. I don't know if this made money in the early 60's, probably did. The presence of a 20 y/o Elke Sommer (very well cast) helps it along, but there's no where to go with this story.

A 3 out of 10. Best performance = Elke Sommer. Slight nudity and cool clubs don't make up for the stuttering lack of balance or control. Some beautiful girls, lots of smoking and slick maneuvers by the men doesn't translate into cohesive story. But Elke fans should check this one out (very early in her career) pre-America.
