Originally Pazzi di Giola, this romantic comedy was written by Vittorio De Sica, who also plays the leading role of Count Valli. The lightweight story concerns the misadventures of a honeymooning couple (De Sica and Marie Denis) during a motor trip through Southern Italy. Unbeknownst to the bride, her husband is a member of the nobility, a fact that leads to any number of complications and misunderstandings. The supporting characters are relegated to comedy relief, with many of their funnier lines compromised by the unimaginative English-language subtitles. The film's highlight is a dream sequence, replete with a song rendition by the ubiquitous Mr. De Sica.
