Wye narrated his situation, stationed in quiet Hawaii in the later years of WWII, then a bench-warmer beaned by a foul ball on the squad baseball team, awakens to find himself attended by a gal from college (Paula Prentiss), who seems far sexier now, in The Horizontal Lieutenant, 1962, the fourth and final Hutton-Prentiss picture from MGM.

Arabesque (1966) -- (Movie Clip) These English Crosswords Are Devilish Secretly working on behalf of a virtuous Arab government, American Egyptologist Pollock (Gregory Peck) meets Yasmin (Sophia Loren), mistress of sinister Beshraavi (Alan Badel), who’s hired him to decipher a hieroglyph he obtained through nefarious means, in Stanley Donen’s Arabesque, 1966.
