Loretta Castorini, a bookkeeper from Brooklyn, New York, finds herself in a difficult situation when she falls for the brother of the man she has agreed to marry.
The opening title sequence was originally played on the score from "La bohème" opera but was changed to the Dean Martin track "That's Amore" as the preview drew negative test audience reaction. Many shifted uncomfortably on their seats thinking that they had been lured into an art film.
My mother has a saying. Do you want to hear it?
Rose: Don't shit where you eat!
When Loretta first begins to get ready for the opera she puts on a light shade of lipstick and then when the scene cuts to her finished product she is wearing a deep dark red lipstick. She wears the deep red lipstick the rest of the opera sequence.
