Overview

Rome Adventure

Delmer Daves directs this cross between a travelog and a routine romantic drama set in Italy. The story begins when beautiful librarian Prudence (a misnomer, played by Suzanne Pleshette) decides to take off for Italy. She works in a women's college and was brought up short for recommending a racy book to one of the students. In a huff, she opts to go to the land of opera and find out if Italian men are as romantic as legend maintains. Once there, she runs into Roberto (Rossano Brazzi), who is likely to prove the legend true, and meets Don (Troy Donahue), an American running away from the love of his life, Lyda (Angie Dickinson). Between the glamour and the setting, Daves has geared this fluffy tale for the more innocent-minded teen set.

To this day the song "Al Di La" brings it all back. I saw this movie on my very first date, and after 45 years, it still evokes the same emotions: I want to tour Italy on the back of a VESPA, preferably with a gorgeous guy! Though a fairly shallow script, it's a great travelogue of Rome and Italy, and Troy Donahue is still way too good looking. Refreshing, too, is the high moral tone Prudence sets "insisting Troy sleep on the balcony". My granddaughter could watch this with me! I'm glad the chance came to relive this one.

DISC MADE IN HONG KONG. I will purchase elsewhere in the future if made in Hong Kong. The story itself, of course, is a nice story. Love Suzanne Pleshette and Troy Donahue and of course Angie Dickinson.

Rome Adventure is another great movie from 50's & 60's. They are a long time coming on dvd. Hopefully Susan Slade & Parrish are close behind. Also, lets get some tv series such as 77 Sunset Strip,Hawaiian Eye,Surfside 6, Bourbon Street Beat!!
