    There are literally five performers in this film set against the backdrop of the sun-washed Grecian Isles: Sophia Loren, her chest and her eyes (in that order precisely). The director wastes no time in showcasing her chest, and the guy was right about that. She was 23 when filmed and a Death Star all on her own, in her own right. What's interesting is how she fights to be more than simply eye candy, and that is seen in her eyes which is where one meets the firebrand Ms. Loren herself, and her international debut is explosive indeed. Yes, other people show up, but what chance do they have? The Greek Islands barely had a chance. The story, about the quest for a found item of antiquity, hardly matters at all, the camera - and you, dear reader - merely waiting for Loren to show up again.

    Okay story is boosted by quality performers Clifton Webb and Sophia Loren in her big international breakthrough and dazzling Greek locations all in breathtaking color.

    Sophia's first American film grabbed the international audience's attention and they never let go. She's a delight to watch as fiery Greek sponge diver Phaedra who discovers a sunken treasure, a sculpture from which the film gets its name (I had long wondered what the title meant). She needs help with salvaging and is torn between the services of two candidates. Clifton Webb can offer her a fortune but intends to sell the national prize illegally on the black market, whereas archaeologist Alan Ladd can only offer her a pittance reward but she will bring glory and pride to her country. Webb plays the suave and slightly condescending genteel criminal perfectly, but Ladd is barely adequate and well past his prime. Only in the movies would someone sculpted like Sophia Loren turn her head - or in this case, look down - to notice him as a romantic interest. And if you're ever vacationing on the island of Hydra and run into trouble, just ask for Niko - that kid can do anything!
