The difference between the Loren-Cleopatra (seductive femme-fatale) and the sweet, scared blond girl she plays is striking, and she appears in both roles on the same frame.
I'm a Loren fan and I had to have this early performance of hers dripping sensuality. She would have made a much more impressive Cleopatra than Elizabeth Taylor."
Amusing Italian Sex Comedy, But Very Poor Quality Unrestored

"This is a mildly amusing Italian farce, best known today for the scene showing Sophia Loren taking a nude swim (this clip is all over the Internet). However, the quality of this DVD is really disgraceful. It has not been restored at all, so colors are badly faded and there is dirt everywhere. Furthermore, the DVD is dubbed in English, rather than being available in Italian with English language subtitles.
Hopefully some day a properly restored DVD in Italian with subtitles will be available."
