The Bride Wore Red

Synopsis: Count Armalia believes that the luck of birth is all that separates the rich from the poor. To test his theory, he sends Anni, who is a singer in a dive, to a ritzy resort for two weeks. With fancy new clothes and ersatz status, Anni decides that she likes the rich life. But with time running out, she needs a rich husband and Rudi is the one she chooses. Only it takes longer than two weeks for Rudi to dump his fiancée and propose to her. In the weeks that she has been there, she finds that she loves Giulio, the postman with the small house and the donkey cart. But will she give up love for wealth....

Oh, we have

the most beautiful girls.

That is the lowest, most

decrepit creatures in Trieste.

- Perhaps you would enjoy.

- No, thank you.

Why not?

Not a ladylike enough, perhaps.

If I were to take

one of those poor things

have her properly washed,

dressed and coiffured

you couldn't tell her

from your own fiancee.

Fiancee reminds me,

I've really got to go.

Goodbye, Armalia.

Come up to Turin

if you don't think

Maddelena and I are too smug.

And don't get too dizzy on that

great big wheel of life.

Get out of here.

Let's always sing the praise


Yes, Your Excellency.

Bring a girl to my table.

Washed if possible.

- Perhaps, you would--

- Surprise me.

Anyone will do,

anyone, the one that's singing.

The one that's singing?

Who wants love

Love is a joy we borrow

Pay back in tears tomorrow

So who wants love

Who wants love

Something to fill

your heat with

So very soon to part with

So who wants love

Love is a dream I'm weaving

Moonbeams and patterns rare

Love is a child believing

Stories of castle in the air

So who wants love

I'll go my way without it

I know too much about it

Who wants love

Still good for me,

ain't, duchess?

Much too good.

Well, count is he?

Come to stare at

the animals in the zoo?

Good evening, sir,

would you care to dance

or shall I sing another song,

perhaps an old--

No thank you, let us just be

two human souls in commune.

- Now let's just talk.

- Talk?

Yes. Will you tell me

all about yourself?

Where you were born,

all that sort.

Thank you, I will sit down

since you insist.

My name is Anni Pavlovitch.

Born in Poland, age 25,

mother, Austrian.

And I'm not going to tell you

my father was an aristocrat.

- Didn't surprised me.

- Didn't surprised me either.

- You talk well.

- Oh, yes.
