I saw this movie in a US theater (yes indeed it was dubbed, not sub-titled) when I was a kid -- 11 or 12 years old, in 1966 -- it was for some odd reason the bottom half of a double-bill with another Columbia release, "Born Free". It ran barely 60 minutes, so clearly it was quite different from what Europeans saw. I know I enjoyed it (even though I'd never heard of Marisol, and would never come across her again) and have never forgotten it. I guess maybe I was fascinated by the fact that this movie no one had heard of was playing at my local neighborhood theater with a big Hollywood co-feature. Don't know why it popped into my head tonight. Must've been the music, or maybe the European locations. I was unaware, until I found it described here, that it was directed by Mel Ferrer, of all people. Another comment mentions that he got the film a "wide US release" but I'd be astounded to find out it played outside of big cities (I grew up in New York). I suspect Mr Ferrer had friends in high places. I would love to come across it on DVD or cable -- a remote possibility, I'm guessing. Oh well... another lost relic of childhood, gone forever. I wonder if anyone in the US remembers ever seeing this film? Maybe it's on YouTube? Oh. Guess not.
