Review

Our Score
Given that the screenplay for this was written by the novelist and distinguished film critic Graham Greene from his own book, its awfulness defies explanation. Granted, the casting of Glynis Johns and Rossano Brazzi, as a newlywed couple honeymooning in Monte Carlo at the invitation of a vaguely characterised and only intermittently seen Robert Morley, is a pairing so unlikely as to sink the enterprise on its own. However, the screenplay, about the husband developing a dangerous gambling obsession, is not much better. Monte Carlo and all the trappings of the jet-set life look wonderful. So what.

Summary

An accountant and his wife are sent on a trip to Monte Carlo as a reward for good work - but nothing is as it seems. Comedy, starring Glynis Johns and Rossano Brazzi.
