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....

Guess, we breathe and sleep

and are hungry too.

- Very much like human beings.

- Naturally, senora.

Who was you mother,

who was your father?

How did you happen

to become a count?

Proud of you to come here, and

stay and ask me questions.

I know, I'd been told

it's all the matter of luck.

I had the good luck

to be born rich, while you--

I had the bad luck to be born.

You're absolutely right,

it's most unjust.

One is powerless

to protest one's fate.

- Powerless to stop--

- I'm hungry.

I'm sorry. Waiter!

Waiter, bring some hors d'oeuvre

for the lady

best you've got, caviar.

Caviar for the count.

Bring me a dish of stew,

with meat in it.

And remember

put plenty of meat in it.

Are you gonna drink some beer?

Champagne's good enough for me.

Ah, you didn't crook your little

finger, thank you for that.

Where did you learn

such charming manners?

I go to the movies, I watch

the ladies of your world.

Lots of simple and

stupid and artificial.

My world's bad luck that

you weren't born in it.

- Madam?

- Yes, it it.

How would you like a little

holiday, Signorina Anni?

Some of the fine hotels, say,

have servants wait on you?

Plenty of food, sunshine,

beautiful clothes.

I'm not going there so I can

have a red evening dress.

'Yeah, of course,

anything you want.'

I think I'll send you to Turin.

- What's that? A sanatorium?

No, it is a fashionable hotel

in the Tyrol

filled with the ladies and

gentlemen of breeding.

Give me two weeks,

of it, two weeks exactly.

Waiter, give me a pencil.

I'll wire the hotel, the best

room for my little friend.

And Galli, I'm gonna get Galli

for your dresses.

I'd give you the money now

rather than you make off

with it.

How soon can you go?

Take me a week to close my town

house, dismiss the servants.
