Errol Flynns girlfriend, Mina, and a Jerry-Lewis-lookalike
9 August 2014 | by discount1957See all my reviews

I wonder why Italian films of this period (1950s to 1960s) are almost never commented on IMDb.

This is not a bad one. And there's an interesting connection: One of the major roles is played by Linda Christian, an actress much discussed in the scandal-press of those times, and now almost entirely forgotten (a fate that will befall some of today's actresses, too, after some time has gone by). Her second name 'Christian' was suggested by Errol Flynn (who was associated with her)after his own role of Fletcher Christian in the film 'In the Wake of the Bounty'(1933).

The scene of this film is Ischia in 1960. Main person is a little girl (Maria Letizia Gazzoni)who doesn't want her father (after her mother had died) to be married to a young woman who wants her to go to an 'Internat'(a kind of School, led by nuns, where she would have to live).

Instead she wants her father (a singer and orchestra leader, played by the then well-known Italian singer ('Volare') Domenico Modugno) to marry a different pretty young woman (Antonella Lualdi), in order to have a stepmother after her taste, who will not send her away. The problem is that this preferred new mother is still connected with a very arrogant leader of a classical orchestra... so the little Girl has to be very smart to get what she wants...

One of the two tobacco-smugglers towards the end of this film is mimically a Jerry-Lewis-lookalike.

Modugno sings some very typical Italian songs of the 1950s in Italy, as does also the then famous Italian female singer Mina. The film is full of the atmosphere of those times, and if one is interested in this aspect, it will be rewarding to watch it.
