Rome Adventure Reviews:

Rome Journey is not only intrinsically enjoyable but is an perfect illustration of the power of restraint, innuendo, and "naughtiness" in romance films. It was made just before the dam broke and everything was allowed to go in movies. The lovebirds' struggle over whether to end Suzanne Pleshette's virginity has a charm, heat even, that cannot exist amidst the too-much-information sex scenes we see today. Boxed-in attitudes manifested in Rome Journey create the slightest double entendre unexpected and powerful, even giggly. The kissing is tender and tongueless but very intimate for all that. I have no interest in promoting abstinence in life or in film, but see this picture and then test saying yourself that nothing was lost when large screen freedom came in.


A unbelievable romantic film that in my view is highly underrated. While this is by no means a nice film, it is difficult to search much better if you're in the mood for pure romantic escapism. Pleshette, Dickinson, and of course Donahue are a feast for the eyes. The sets are gorgeous, particularly Angie Dickinson's place. To wear those clothes they wore and have a chic tiny dinner in an apartment like that we can only fantasize about in this day and age. The scenery of Italy takes back seat to nothing in this movie but for my cash the best stage is at the romantic tiny restaurant when the singer sings "Al di La". Folks, purchase it or rent it because you will never see this kind of film on the large screen anymore.


I was 16 when Rome Journey was in the theaters. I did not see it at that time but had a film magazine with a picture of Angie Dickinson on the back. In the article, she talked about how much fun she had in making the film and riding around Rome on motorcycles. Rome Journey typifies the innocence and naivete of the early 1960s. It is almost a travelogue. Suzanne Pleshette plays librarian Prudence Bell on her large trip to Rome. She is looking for love and finds it in Troy Donahue. Angie Dickinson is a third party and potential spoiler in the triangle. Finally, real love wins out. Al Di La is the theme song, one of the most romantic pieces of melody ever written. Emilio Pericoli sings it. We just wish to float away, "beyond the beyond." The scenes of ancient Rome move us to other time and place. The Kennedy assassination and Vietnam were right around the corner, so we had to play this while we could. Rome Journey is one of my favourite movies.
