NotesMother attempts to marry off her daughter who has learning difficulties. This film is rated high elsewhere. I consider it badly acted (look at the cast), badly scripted (even though the writer is Julius Epstein) and just a glossy romance set in a beautiful location. Yvette Mimieux acts a beautiful woman with a mental age of ten following an accident during her childhood. She is totally inadequate in conveying this. From the novel by Elizabeth Spencer.
