Rome Adventure

1962. Starring Troy Donahue Angie Dickinson Rossano Brazzi Suzanne Pleshette and Constance Ford.

Delmer Daves directs this cross between a travelog and a routine romantic drama set in Italy. The story begins when beautiful librarian Prudence (a misnomer played by Suzanne Pleshette) decides to take off for Italy. She works in a women's college and was brought up short for recommending a racy book to one of the students. In a huff she opts to go to the land of opera and find out if Italian men are as romantic as legend maintains. Once there she runs into Roberto (Rossano Brazzi) who is likely to prove the legend true and meets Don (Troy Donahue) an American running away from the love of his life Lyda (Angie Dickinson). Between the glamour and the setting Daves has geared this fluffy tale for the more innocent-minded teen set. ~ Eleanor Mannikka All Movie Guide

Parrish

1961. Starring Troy Donahue Claudette Colbert Karl Malden and Connie Stevens.

A scenic tobacco-road soap opera by director Delmar Daves known more for his westerns Parrish features Troy Donahue in the eponymous title role. Parrish's mother Ellen (Claudette Colbert in her last movie role) happens to marry one of two competing tobacco growers in the Connecticut River Valley. Her new husband and Parrish's stepfather Judd Raike (a snarling Karl Malden) drums the tobacco business into Parrish alienating him in the bargain. The lad is soon romancing three different women: Judd's daughter Paige (Sharon Hugeny) the daughter of Judd's arch-rival and a wanton woman of the tobacco fields. Now all that remains is for the romance and the rivalry to shake down into the winners and losers. ~ Eleanor Mannikka All Movie Guide
