Hayley Mills is my all-time favorite actress but her performance in this movie was mediocre at best. Sure, she looked STUNNING but her acting seemed forced and not sincere.
The characters in this movie were VERY uninteresting and it was hard to understand what Trevor Howard, Shashi Kapoor, Kalen Liu and some of the others were saying with their strong accents and speaking really fast.
This movie's plot and scenery seemed to be all over the map and really had little direction and emotion which left me really BORED!!! The soundtrack was fair but nothing special but I did like Matt Monro's singing of the title song.
Hayley's last GREAT movie was "The Trouble With Angels" made the year before (1966) but all of her movies after that were never hits in the USA. The public never accepted her new image and thus, she will be forever remembered most of all for her Disney movies and for "The Trouble With Angels".
