    I also like to know where the indoor scenes of the morgue have been shot, since this room is not inside the church.

    Loved the music played at the hotel. Such a pity most of those in the scenes are no longer with us.

    Will now watch the film Avanti before retiring.

      A magnificent film with stellar performances from all the cast, especially Clive Revill. He was so convincing as the director of the hotel that you would expect to see him there. Unfortunately, such films aren’t made anymore so we must make sure we appreciate them like the cinematic jewewls they are. Also, you’re quite right, the music played at the hotel was magnificent as was the theme tune.

        Clive Revill was great , I do not know if when he was speaking Italian it was dubbed , but his Italian was perfect .It took me a while , but I finally figured out that , he was an Irish terrorist on Columbo, it must have been the moustache in this film that threw me off.

        I saw Avanti! in 1972 and to this day I remember the musical theme running throughout the film. I just watched it again last night on DVD and it is just as good. Interestingly, a Google search shows that many of the actors in the film are still alive. Clive Revill and Juliet Mills for example.

    Thanks for all of the info. I have loved this film and watched it many times. I do not consider it to be a comedy, or at least not JUST a comedy, but a sweet love story that always leaves me yearning for a trip to Italy with my love. I’ll get there and will definitely stay at the Grand Hotel Excelsior, Vittoria. We may even take a swim. Thanks again and Ciao!

    The ice cream scene is on Piazzale Aragonese, in the town of Ischia. Pamela running up the steps is not in Lacco Ameno, but in Atrani (Amalfi Coast), along Traversa Maddalena. The top of the steps (where she’s picked up by the coroner on a scooter), on the other hand, is on Via Nuovo Montevico, Lacco Ameno, the island of Procida.
