Romantic drama starring Michael Denison, Dulcie Gray and Valentina Cortese.


  • Henry Cass


  • Valentina Cortese

  • Dulcie Gray

  • Michael Denison


Nino Rota's memorable theme music turned this sudsy romantic drama into a giant popular hit. Michael Denison suffers stoically as the composer torn between two women (one of them played by Dulcie Gray, his real-life wife). Opera lovers will enjoy the musical sequences performed by Tito Gobbi and Eleanor Rizzieri, with the orchestra and chorus of the Venice Opera House.
