With top stars Clark Gable as the American Michael Hamilton and Sophia Loren as the very Italian Lucia Curcio, this comedy by director Michael Shavelson already has a lot going for it. 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.

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

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!
