This film was one of 1957's top grossers mainly due to the fact that inthose years the public wanted exotic European location shooting and thefilm certainly does a good job of showing Greece and Sophia Loren whois ravishing.The story is a thriller.Alan Ladd plays a archaeologist,Sophia a poor sponge diver and Clifton Webb an unscrupulous collectorof art.The plot is not really that important.What counts is the sceneryand Sophia.Alan Ladd whom I have always considered as a very goodactor, but underrated by critics does a good job,like always(he alwaystried his best), all the more so that his partner was really very muchtaller than him and he suffered from that.I don't understand whyeverybody made so much fuss about Alan Ladd's size.He was just as shortor tall as Humphrey Bogart or James Cagney or even George Raft.The filmis very enjoyable.

In one of my earliest cinematic film memories; this big screen epic captured me and my imagination with the theme of marine achaeology; the beauty of the sea; and the romance of Sophia Loren & Allan Ladd.
Some of the finest early location color shotting produced by Hollywood; and a desire to re-see it thwarts what would be a fine re-make opportunity!
Recently saw this on cable, and was surprised to learn that it was released in 1957. I don't believe there's another mainstream film from the '50s that shows a major actress wearing nothing but a Wet-T? Sophia's bare bosom could clearly be seen through her clothing. This film also appears to have been the forerunner for "The Deep." While a tad slow-moving, the scenery and eye-candy more than makes up for it. -D, NYC "Thousands & thousands of details go into the making of a film. It is the sum total of all these things that either makes a great picture or destroys it" - David O.
