Come September (1961): Romantic Comedy Starring Rock Hudson, Lollobrigida, Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin

Rock Hudson, taking a break off from his Doris Day films, stars in Come September, a two-generational romantic comedy as Robert Talbot, an ultra-rich and spoiled American.

Talbot owns an Italian villa, where he stays only one month out of the year (September), but when Talbot suddenly decides to show up in July, Talbot’s overseer Maurice (Walter Slezak) is shocked to see him, as he has turned Talbot’s villa into a hotel for the year’s remaining 11 months.

Talbot becomes distracted by the beautiful Lisa Fellini (Gina Lollobrigida) and soon he is trying to prevent her from marrying another man. Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin (in his first screen role) play young guests of the villa, as Sandy and Tony.

Dee and Darin got married after this picture.
