The wide-screen magnificence of Rome and Venice is a lot more impressive than the rambling story... Full Review

The film has warmth, humor, a rich dose of romance and almost incredible pictorial appeal. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Not very nice to the women, for what was probably considered a 'woman's picture.' Full Review

Given that this is the stuff of movies, you can pretty much guess the outcome, but the journey to true love is undeniably sweet. Full Review

This touristy romance was an unexpected hit in its day, but you'd hardly think it to look at it now. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- This pleasant boy-meets-girl story (times three) is more distinguished for its photography and title song than for its predictable plot. Full Review

Description by

Three American women (played by Dorothy McGuire, Jean Peters and Maggie McNamara) decide it's time to end their single status in romantic Italy. So they whimsically toss coins into Rome's spectacular Trevi Fountain for luck in romance. But none has the kind of luck they'd hoped for: Just as Anita (Peters) seems destined for love with a handsome translator (Rossano Brazzi), she is fired for breaking company rules against dating a co-worker; Maria (McNamara) falls for a dangerous wolf in prince's clothing (Louis Jourdan), and Miss Frances' (McGuire) only prospect for love is - well - annoying! A charming classic, Three Coins In The Fountain is a must-see for anyone who's ever taken a chance on romance.

Product Description:

In this handsomely photographed romance, three American women pin their hopes for love on wishes they make by tossing coins into the Fountain of Trevi in Rome. Remade in Spain as "The Pleasure Seekers," the film is based on a novel by John H. Secondari. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Picture. Academy Awards: Best Cinematography (color), and Best Song ("Three Coins in the Fountain" - Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn).

Plot Synopsis:

3 American women living in Rome toss coins into the Fountain of Trevi -- which makes all wishes come true. And they do... but not quite in the way the women expected.


Production Notes:

  • This was the first CinemaScope picture to be shot abroad.
