Love Parrish, and their pairing in a few movies. Many thought these 2 had married in real life but that was not the case.  Sadly, I no longer have access to TCM thanks to Comcast.

I like the way Connie Stevens re-invented herself early on and became a successful entrepreneur-- she was one of the earlier actresses to do so, I think.  Resourceful.

I think Suzanne Pleshett was married to Troy Donahue.  Not sure though.

@skylark - Yes Suzanne and Troy were married, but it didn't last long.  They were divorced after nine months.

Susan Slade was another great movie with Connie and Troy.

Troy and Suzanne made Rome Adventure in 1962 and fell in love on and off set. She knew when she married him it would never last, but she said had she broken it off, she would have always had regrets so she went through with it, just to get him out of her system. .

I really sat down and paid attention to this movie, by the way thank you for the heads up  So many  things Parrish said in this movie are so relevant today.  A good movie, good acting.  Karl Malden was so good at being so bad. This was definitely a change of pace for Connie Stevens, she did a good job.  I wonder if she and Troy were good friends.  They always seemed comfortable together.
