Carrying charm, suspense, romance, the production offers Anthony Quinn at his seasoned best, a plot and unfoldment that holds the spectator.

Lost without a message to sledgehammer home, Kramer turned to bombastic comedy with this World War II yarn.

Quinn, as always, is the highlight in this fine Stanley Kramer production.

The sort of film you usually fall asleep in front of on a Sunday afternoon -- later to wish you'd stayed awake for the outcome.

Audience Reviews for The Secret of Santa Vittoria

A charming cast invigorates this predictable tale of small town Italian mountain villagers outwitting the mean old greedy Nazis at the end of WWll, hiding a lot of wine that the Krauts want to appropriate. Quinn, Magnani, and Giannini shine.
