An amusing Italian comedy starring Vitti as a naive young Sicilian girl who is snatched by Giuffre and dragged up to a mountain retreat, where he can compromise her reputation and instantly win her hand in marriage to avoid further embarrassment. Little does he know what he got himself

into, however, because Vitti suddenly becomes a nymphomanic who drives the exhausted Sicilian boy away. Vitti returns to her village without a husband and sets out to find the louse and bring him back. Her search leads her to England, where her provincial Sicilian ways stick out like a sore thumb.

Soon some culture rubs off on Vitti, and she begins to assimilate more British manners until she ensnares local doctor Baker. Eventually she runs into Giuffre and gets her revenge by slapping him in the face and running off to marry Baker. Nominated by the Academy for Best Foreign Film, it lost to

WAR AND PEACE.
