Movie Info

Just a few years after Psycho made him an internationally known actor, Anthony Perkins starred with Sophia Loren in this suspense drama about a mismatched husband and wife, Bob and Lisa. When they first met in Italy, Lisa was an impoverished young woman and Bob was an American GI who looked like he was going somewhere. Now that the couple has settled down in Paris, Lisa has a steady job but Bob cannot seem to last very long in any employment whatsoever. Just as Lisa bids him good-bye at the airport, on his way to yet another job possibility, she lets him know that she is leaving him. Well, the plane crashes and Bob manages to get away intact without anyone knowing it. He shows up back home and convinces Lisa to collect on his life insurance -- and that is when everything starts to go downhill on a bobsled.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this movie, it stars two of my favourite actors, and the story is really cool. It's dramatic, suspenseful, and exciting, but also funny. I highly recommend it.

    Wonderful cinematography and great acting from the beautiful Sophia. And Anthony Perkins was wonderfully eerie just like in Psycho... but a little toned down. This is a hidden gem! :)
