Description by OLDIES.com:
It's 1907 in Vienna, the "City of the Waltz." Beautiful Sophia Loren (Two Women) is the Austrian princess who, despite her exile from the familial estate for "scandalous indiscretions," scorns her mother's wish to marry a prince. Instead, she sets her sights on handsome John Gavin (Psycho), a visiting American mining engineer who has garnered the approval of her father (Maurice Chevalier) as well. Michael Curtiz (Casablanca, White Christmas) directs, and Angela Lansbury provides icy snap as a scheming countess. With the elaborate costumes and sumptuous decor of Viennese society, A Breath of Scandal is a breezy, charming and refreshing romantic comedy that sets Emperor Franz Joseph's court abuzz with unrestrained gossip!
An updated Molnar romance of an old-world princess romanced by an American industrialist gives Sophia Loren a chance to look stunningly beautiful. A BREATH OF SCANDAL is an atypical outing by CASABLANCA director Michael Curtiz.
Austrian Princess Olympia is in a quandary.
Olympia is betrothed to an unloving, buffoonish Prussian prince named Ruprecht. Then she meets Charlie, a mining engineer from the States, and falls in love with him. It looks like she may have to follow her heart, not tradition, and say "I do" to the charming American.
Will she really go through with it' Or will the conventions of royalty dictate her groom'
