Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Based on a true story, Ti Ritrovera is set in postwar Naples. Newlywed Maria (Delia Scala) can't understand why her husband disappeared without a trace during their honeymoon. What the audience knows, but Maria doesn't, is that hubby is a British intelligence agent on a top-secret mission. Maria finally locates her husband with the help of sympathetic village priest Don Giuseppe (Enrico Viarisio). Featured as an American MP is John Kitzmiller, whom most filmgoers will remember as "Quarrel" in the inaugural James Bond entry Doctor No (1962). Though its story has dramatic potential, director Giacomo Gentilomo chooses to play most of Ti Ritrovera for laughs, and very effectively.
