Anthology film about three owners of a yellow Rolls-Royce. A British diplomat buys the car for his French wife. A mobster's girlfriend has an affair in Italy. An American woman drives a Yugoslavian partisan to Ljubljana on the eve of the Nazi invasion.
The Rolls-Royce used in the film was a pale blue 1931 Phantom II Barker sedanca de ville, which MGM technicians covered with twenty coats of yellow paint; a few coats of black were added to the top of the hood, the roof, and the wings.
