This is a fun movie. In fact, it's one of a handful of films in which lead Gregory Peck actually seems to be having a great time, and who wouldn't be when the co-star is Sophia Loren? (And doesn't her pose on the cover above remind you of Raquel Welch's for ONE MILLION YEARS, B.C.?) Peck isn't terribly convincing as a character who throws out one-liners like a comedian. But, oh well, I liked him in it. Loren...well, she's a fine actress and does nothing here to disprove that. Look for Kieran Moore (DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE, DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS) as one of the heavies. The plot is far too convoluted to try to summarize in a short report, but it boasts a resemblance to CHARADE from 1963: twists and turns abound, there are several changing alliances; both films were directed by Stanley Donen, scored by Henry Mancini, and feature wonderful, kaleidoscopic main title sequences created by Maurice Binder. The film gets a little arty-farty with its cinematography, and has a plot that is possible to follow, but which nonetheless comes across as overly busy at times. In the end, though, I felt gratified, as the script veers back and forth between humor and danger, sometimes both at once, and the balance works pretty well. As I said, it's fun. You can't take a film like this seriously, nor, I think, were you intended to. The Blu-ray comes from Cult Media in Italy. It is presented correctly in the 2.35:1 ratio. Image quality is generally delightful, with strong color, sharpness, and black levels. Infrequently there is a bit of blocking in darker areas. As for film grain, it's there, but as with some other Universal Blu-rays, someone creating the master seemed to be cherry-picking which individual shots would have visible grain and which are smoothed out (but still quite watchable). I doubt the original projected prints were this inconsistent. The audio (both English and Italian) are Dolby 2.0 mono, but is quite excellent. Italian subtitles (only) are available. The film is all-region. The sale price on Amazon Italy is a bargain. It is also available for sale through Daaveedee, and can be rented from 3D Blu-ray.com I recommend this film with a few minor caveats. Looked and sounded good to my eyes.
