  • (It's a pretty bad movie, but there's one line that comes close to redeeming it. Spanish guerilla leader Frank Sinatra (!!) loses possession of a huge cannon to British soldier Cary Grant. Sophia Loren: "You're jealous of him because he has a big cannon and he knows how to use it!" That's priceless.)
