Uneven, overlong compendium unworthy of its heavyweight directors, but redeemed by jolly moments, sunny good humour and much female pulchritude. Visconti's episode is the weakest. A fourth story, directed by Mario Monicelli, was dropped for international release. With this included, the film runs 210 minutes.
