Directed by Oscar winning cinematographer Guy Green based on a screenplay from Julius Epstein (Casablanca), this average drama features a recognizable cast and tear-jerking story. Olivia de Havilland plays a mother whose beautiful twenty-something daughter - played by the perfect actress for the part, Yvette Mimieux - is emotionally immature. While vacationing in Italy, the two are pestered by a young local, played curiously by George Hamilton. Hamilton's character is naturally attracted to Mimieux's innocence and wants to introduce her to his family.
