Come September is a classic romantic comedy from 1961 that stars Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida as wealthy American Robert Talbot and his Italian lover Lisa Fellini. The film is set in the serene countryside of Northern Italy, where Talbot spends his summers in his luxurious villa on the Italian Riviera. However, his peaceful escape is disturbed when he returns to his villa and finds that it has been occupied by a group of vacationing American college students, led by the charming Sandy Stevens (played by Sandra Dee).

Talbot is initially angry at the unexpected guests who are disrupting his plans to spend a relaxing vacation alone with Lisa, but he gradually warms up to their carefree ways, particularly Stevens'. Sandy, in turn, is fascinated by the luxurious mansion and the mysterious Italian woman she encounters there. As the two spend more time together, they fall in love and set out on a series of romantic escapades that take them all over the Italian countryside.

As the film progresses, it becomes clear that Talbot and Lisa's relationship is not as solid as it appears. Talbot is a workaholic who is more interested in making money than spending time with Lisa, and the Italian beauty begins to feel lonely and forgotten. Meanwhile, Sandy's father, who has been searching for her across Italy, shows up at the villa and causes chaos. Talbot, Lisa, Sandy, and all of the other characters must work together to keep the situation under control, while also trying to figure out their own romantic conundrums.

Throughout the movie, the viewer is treated to gorgeous views of Northern Italy, including the rolling hills, charming villages, and Mediterranean coastline. The cinematography is stunning and expertly captures the beauty and charm of the Italian countryside. In addition, the soundtrack features a classic 1960s score that perfectly captures the romantic and carefree tone of the film.

Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida both give stellar performances in the lead roles. Hudson is convincing as the work-obsessed millionaire who learns to relax and enjoy life, while Lollobrigida is charming and beautiful as the glamorous Italian beauty who captures his heart. Sandra Dee, who was a popular teenage actor at the time, also shines in her role as Sandy, bringing a youthful energy and innocence to the film.

Come September is a quintessential 1960s romantic comedy, complete with gorgeous scenery, beautiful people, and a catchy soundtrack. The film is a lighthearted and enjoyable romp through the Italian countryside, and is sure to leave viewers feeling happy and romantic. With its timeless charm and engaging performances, it's no wonder that Come September remains a beloved classic to this day.
