VERY GOOD 1957 film - Sophia Loren's American film debut. She is VERY beautiful in a variety of ways in the film, as is the color/cinemascope filmography of many Greek Islands settings. Interesting plot when sponge diver Sophia character accidentally finds an ancient Greek statue of a boy riding a dolphin on the bottom of the Aegean Sea - what will be done with it.

I didn't notice the following - guess they did a good job... The dissimilarity in heights between the 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m) Loren and 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) Ladd led to complications in filming. Some of their scenes together required him to stand on a box, while another forced a trench to be dug for Loren when the pair walked along the beach.
