This was okay, i just couldn't accept the relationship between Loren and Perkins. I didn't find Perkins particularly intimidating either. This is a relatively well executed film but it feels more like a 'star vehicle' than anything else.

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.

Mismatched pair Loren and Perkins are not only mismatched as cast for this film but mismatched in their marriage. Black and white early 60's film. Still, a better movie than anything made after the year 2000.

Sophia Loren in her finest is made to act with limp, unromantic and anti-romantic Anthony Perkins, decidely the most love lost pair on the planet. Perkins is just about as weird and robot like a character it gets.

Set in Paris... A pushy, neurotic American (Anthony Perkins) convinces his terrified wife (Sophia Loren) to do a scam to collect his $120,000 life insurance when it's assumed that he has been killed in a plane crash. But there's a catch, of course...

Great movie, great actors. An absolute must-see for fans of the genre, fans of Sophia Loren and fans of Anthony Perkins.

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! :)
