This is a suspense story with some wild camera work that is accompanied by a great score by Henry Mancini and directed by Stanley Donen who also directed "Singin' in the Rain" and the similar suspense story "Charade." It also features a ridiculously stunning Sophia Loren.

Sophia Loren and Gregory Peck are chased by a man through the Zoological Gardens in London. There are lots of interesting shots of them running past animals in barred cages (zoos were designed for the viewability of the patrons in those days, not for the comfort of the animals) and then we see them filmed through various aquariums, and running in front of a large tank holding some sea turtles. The chase continues above the turtle tanks and doesn't end well for the man chasing them who is drowned in one of the tanks.
