Warner Bros 'Rome Adventure' is one of the more pleasurable films I have ever seen. Troy Donahue after 'A Summer Place' and 'Parrish' and 'Susan Slade'- all Warner Bros films and Delmer Daves directed hit films- was a big romantic star and was Warner Bros biggest male movie star. Troy Donahue is at his peak as a matinée idol in this romantic film. Lush scenery, and magnificent settings that make one travel to Rome!, glorious music by a real legend WB Maestro Max Steiner, and that wonderful romantic song Ai Di La!!! Splendid as always WB production values!Delmer Daves made enjoyable romantic films and Warner Bros. has released Rome Adventure as part of its Romance Classics DVD.Angie Dickinson, Hampton Fancher and Rosanno Brazzi co star and Chad Everett has a small role. Natalie Wood was announced for this film but refused the film and Natalie Wood's mistake became Suzanne Pleshette's good fortune as Ms. Pleshette assumed the role a…
A wonderful romantic movie that in my view is highly underrated. While this is by no means a great film, it is hard to find much better if you’re in the mood for pure romantic escapism. Pleshette, Dickinson, and of course Donahue are a feast for the eyes. The sets are gorgeous, particularly Angie Dickinson’s place. To wear those clothes they wore and have a chic little dinner in an apartment like that we can only fantasize about in this day and age. The scenery of Italy takes back seat to nothing in this film but for my money the greatest scene is at the romantic little restaurant when the singer sings "Al di La". Folks, buy it or rent it because you will never see this type of movie on the big screen anymore.
I was 16 when Rome Adventure was in the theaters. I did not see it at that time but had a movie magazine with a picture of Angie Dickinson on the back. In the article, she talked about how much fun she had in making the movie and riding around Rome on motorcycles. Rome Adventure typifies the innocence and naivete of the early 1960s. It is almost a travelogue. Suzanne Pleshette plays librarian Prudence Bell on her big trip to Rome. She is looking for love and finds it in Troy Donahue. Angie Dickinson is a third party and potential spoiler in the triangle. Finally, true love wins out. Al Di La is the theme song, one of the most romantic pieces of music ever written. Emilio Pericoli sings it. We just want to float away, "beyond the beyond." The scenes of ancient Rome transport us to another time and place. The Kennedy assassination and Vietnam were right around the corner, so we had to enjoy this while we could. Rome Adventure is one of my favorite movies.
