Although set in post-war Italy and featuring an important local Italian family, none of the 5 featured actors is Italian. Joseph Calleia (Dr. Lunati) is Maltese; Richard Avonde (Carlo) is Canadian, Celia Lovsky (Contessa) and Francis Lederer (Baron Rocco) were born in what was Austria-Hungary; and Wanda Hendrix (Baronessa Giulia) is from Jacksonville, FL.

Mona Lisa deservedly won the Academy Award for Best Song. And Celia Lovesky makes a marvelous Contessa in the center of the intrigue being investigated by Ladd. But, the film moves unbearably slowly in its middle, and the chemistry between Ladd and Hendrix is zilch. Overall, it's just another postwar intrigue film.
