Enjoyed this film from beginning to end and and never realized how great an actress Gina Lollobrigida was and the performance she gave in this film as Marie Marcello. This story concerns itself all around a very wealthy billionaire named Charles Richmond, (Ralph Richardson) who was a very evil man and loved to mistreat everyone he came in contact with and treated his servants just like dogs and even the dogs hated this Charles. Anthony Richmond, (Sean Connery) hated his uncle and took all his abuse like a grain of salt until he met up with a nurse who came to the large mansion to attend to a dog bite. This nurse was Marie Marcello, ( Gina Lollobrigida ) who was very beautiful and had plenty of sex appeal both to Anthony and his uncle Charles. Anthony and Marie get their heads together and come up with a very clever scheme to get hold of this rich man's money. This is a very tricky story and you are kept guessing just how this film will end.
