Gina Lollobrigida plays a Lady of the Evening who is wooed by wealthy young Anthony Franciosa. She leaves him in the dark concerning her checkered past. Alas, Franciosa's father Ernest Borgnine knows everything about Lollobrigida, and breaks the bad news to his son. Aghast at first, Franciosa is willing to forgive Lollobrigida. But since the Production Code was still tenuously in effect, Lollobrigida can't possibly enjoy a happy ending, so she obligingly kills herself. Based on a novel by Tom T. Chamales, Go Naked in the World was written and directed by Ranald MacDougall, and did you know that MacDougall was the husband of Nanette Fabray?
