"This is a nice, light sex comedy in the classic mode which stars the beauteous Gina Lollobrigida in one of her early leading roles. The plot is quite simple; a lecherous count spies a beautiful courtesan on a country road and tries to seduce her. One thing leads to another, and an impoverished young composer hires the courtesan to impersonate his beautiful but buttoned-down wife in order to get the count to bankroll his opera. The usual comedic complications and confusions ensue. Not something that's going to end up on the American Film Institute list any time soon, but a nice diversion for a lazy summer evening.
I must ask if the first reviewer (who threw the movie in the trash because it was in Italian) bothered to check whether the disc was subtitled, because in fact it is, and the English translation is quite good in my opinion."

"For those interested in Gina Lollobrigida's early career, WIFE FOR A NIGHT is well-worth having. The film is not on a par with great works such as PAGLIACCI, FAN FAN LA TULIPE or BEAUTIES OF THE NIGHT, but it is pleasant enough. The DVD has good image and sound. It is in Italian with English subtitles. I only think it should cost half the price for which it is being sold."
