Overview

This melodrama starring Phyllis Calvert disappeared from view after its release and was on the BFI’s 'Most Wanted' list until it turned up in the Cohen Media collection. Calvert also co-produced the film, which was shot largely in southern Italy, the locations earning praise from critics. With a stand-out Italian cast, the film holds up well as a romance set against the backdrop of postwar Capri and Naples.
