In deed the ruins of Pompeii and the surrounding ancient historic sites were a treat to see in this crisp restored film.

Recommended for those who love old movies and Ingrid Bergman. Watched this as I had never heard of this film and was curious. Bergman and Sanders are great. Interesting story but I hated the ending. I enjoyed seeing Naples, Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius post WW II.
