In this hilarious romantic comedy from legendary writer/director Billy Wilder (Irma La Douce, Witness for the Prosecution) and screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond (One, Two, Three), a wealthy American (Jack Lemmon, The War Between Men and Women) discovers true love while in Italy. This honey of a film is as delightful as the Wilder/Diamond/Lemmon classics Some Like It Hot and The Apartment. Businessman Wendell Armbruster, Jr. (Lemmon) is summoned to Italy after a car accident claims the lives of his father and his father's secret mistress. As the mistress' daughter (Juliet Mills, Beyond the Door) also arrives in town, the bodies of both of their parents disappear and the two instant foes are brought together in a baffling mystery... and an affair of the heart! Beautifully shot by Luigi Kuveiller (Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion) and featuring wonderful performances by Clive Revill (Modesty Blaise) and Edward Andrews (Elmer Gantry).
