Michael is a lawyer who arrives in Naples to wrap up the estate of his dead brother, killed in an automobile accident. At issue is not so much his material possessions as the ten-year-old son Nando Marietto that he left behind. Nando's mother also died in the accident and her unmarried sister Lucia has claimed him as her own. As Michael and Lucia clash over legal custody of the young orphan, romantic sparks start to fly from all that friction, making the situation of Nando's custody just a little more complicated.

    Clark Gable is strong, Isle of Capri Magnificent, Sofia Loren, Viva Italia !

    For a fun ride and a look at another culture I recommend "It Started in Naples" You'll laugh, you'll cry and it will leave you smiling ! See It.

    Travelogue! w/Entertaining Story

    The combo of Gable and Loren is great fun! Add to that - Marietto - as 'Nando'(Fernando) who steals every scene he is in. (Whatever happened to this great little guy??) The beauty of 1950 Italian life even though it may be in '200 year old buildings' shows through(actually they are much older than that!). The events in the film have a ring of 'the way it is'. A trip to Naples/Capri in Italia - you can feel the warm!

    Good hearted, good old-fashioned Italian fun

    What can I say? I love this movie and the typical Italianisms in it. The little boy Nando will steal your heart and wish you were there to help in person
