Location scenes filmed in Venice and the Villa di Valmarana. Rome opening in January 1955; running time: 120 min. An English version was filmed in 1954 with dialogue by Tennessee Williams and Paul Bowles, but the 1968 U. S. release is the original version. A substantially cut dubbed version entitled The Wanton Contessa was shown on U. S. television before 1968. Photographers Krasker and Rotunno replaced Graziata, who died during production. Graziata is also known as G. R. Aldo.
