Description by OLDIES.com:
This romantic comedy, an Italian and French anthology, is comprised of four short films each directed by a different director, each featuring a different star of '60s European cinema. The first vignette, "Queen Sabina" tells the story of a hitchhiker (Monica Vitti) who can't seem to make it home without driving each of her drivers mad with passion. "Queen Armenia" centers on a gypsy babysitter (Claudia Cardinale) who takes full advantage of a doctor's bedside manner. The third episode, "Queen Elena" centers on a husband who can't get the seductive wife next door (Raquel Welch) out of his mind. The last vignette, "Queen Marta" centers on a wealthy woman (Capucine) who, when sober, is a cold, haughty member of high society, but after a few drinks, becomes the purring plaything for her chauffeur who can't keep track of where his place should be. Newly remastered.
This melodramatic Italian and French anthology is comprised of four unrelated short films directed by four different directors. The first vignette, "Queen Sabina" (or "The Hitchhiker") chronicles the sexual misadventures of a teenage girl on the road home. "Queen Armenia" (aka "The Room with a Juke Box") centers on a self-serving opportunistic gypsy babysitter who uses her employer's kids for her own gain. The third episode, "Queen Elena" (aka "The Digestive Tablet") centers on a husband who learns a lesson about the perils of infidelity after he succumbs to the wiles of the seductive wife next door. The last vignette, "Queen Marta" (aka "Giovanni") centers on a wealthy woman who, when drunk, uses her butler as an outlet for her lust.
