Boy On a Dolphin

Starring: Sophia Loren, Alan Ladd and Clifton Webb

Sophia Loren and Alan Ladd star in a sun-drenched romantic adventure starring as a diver and an archaeologist battling over the fate of a rare Greek statue.
Phaedra (Sophia Loren in her first Hollywood role) is a poor sponge diver on the lovely Greek isle of Hydra. While deep diving, she discovers an ancient brass and gold statue of a boy riding a dolphin.
Anthropologist Jim Calder (Alan Ladd), working in Greece to restore national treasures, wants the artifact but he can’t pay for it, and asks Phaedra to donate it to his museum.
In the meantime, Phaedra’s lazy boyfriend has seized on the opportunity to sell the treasure to an unscrupulous art collector (Clifton Webb), who not only takes a shine
to Phaedra, but intends to smuggle the sculpture out of the country.
‘Will forever be remembered for one thing: Sophia Loren, aged 23, rising from the waters of the Mediterranean, her mustard yellow shirt soaked and clinging to her beauty queen figure.This was her Hollywood debut and, boy, was it eye-catching’ – New York Times
