Movie Info

Adapted by playwright John Patrick from a novel by famed globetrotter/filmmaker John H. Secondari, Three Coins in the Fountain offers the splendors of Rome in Technicolor, CinemaScope and Stereophonic Sounds. For all its lovely picture-postcard images, the film is at base a reworking of 20th Century-Fox' favorite plotline: three pretty girls on the prowl for husbands. The three lovelies, who toss their coins in the Trevi fountain and wish for romance, include Dorothy McGuire, Jean Peters and

The film has warmth, humor, a rich dose of romance and almost incredible pictorial appeal.

This touristy romance was an unexpected hit in its day, but you'd hardly think it to look at it now.

Three Coins in the Fountain is quite clearly a film in which the locale comes first. However, the nonsense of its fable tumbles nicely within the picture frame.

This pleasant boy-meets-girl story (times three) is more distinguished for its photography and title song than for its predictable plot.

Formulaic fifties romantic tish.

The melodic song and grand Rome setting are more memorable than anything in the plot, characters, or acting; the movie is credited with helping increase American tourism to Italy.

Not very nice to the women, for what was probably considered a 'woman's picture.'

Given that this is the stuff of movies, you can pretty much guess the outcome, but the journey to true love is undeniably sweet.

Audience Reviews for Three Coins in the Fountain

I watched this movie because we toured Rome last year. It was nice to relive our holiday through the scenery - even though we were there sixty years later.
The movie was nothing special - something about three girls finding husbands.

Dated hogwash but viewed in the right frame of mind enjoyable with gorgeous views of Rome and the Italian countryside.

Not a bad movie, but it's really just another romantic comedy, which just happens to be set in Italy. It has it's moments, but overall it's not a great movie.
