One of Italy's most beautiful sex symbols, Gina Lollobrigida, stars as the flirtatious Ippolita in this routine comedy about sex and the jealous husband. Ippolita leaves her life as a vaudeville actress to marry Luca (Enrico Mario Salerno), who runs a gas station. She helps him out but has a weakness for flirting with his customers, the male customers at least. Although she remains faithful to her husband she still takes great liberties. For example, she has no qualms about going off to visit Venice with a man who comes to take her away for a brief sojourn in the city of canals. And her clothes tend to reveal more than they hide. So after Ippolita comes back from enjoying a night out dancing, trouble brews when she discovers her husband in bed with her best friend.
