In this hilarious, lighthearted comedy from acclaimed writer/director Billy Wilder and screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond (The Apartment), a wealthy American discovers romance and the meaning of avanti while in Italy. Nominated for six Golden Globes – winning one – this "honey of a film" (Boxoffice) is as delightful as the Wilder/Diamond/Jack Lemmon classics Some Like It Hot and Irma La Douce!
American businessman Wendell Armbruster (Lemmon) is summoned to Italy after a car accident claims the lives of his father and his father’s secret mistress! And when the mistress’ daughter (Juliet Mills) also arrives – and the bodies of both of their parents disappear – the two instant foes are brought together in a baffling mystery…and an affair of the heart!
