Kino Lorber presents a new 4K restoration of the 1957 watery adventure yarn Boy on a Dolphin, starring Alan Ladd (Shane) and Italian goddess Sophia Loren (Marriage Italian Style) in her American film debut.

boyonadolphin1In a seaside village on the Greek island of Hydra, the beautiful sponge-diver Phaedra (Loren) finds a breath-taking gold statue of a boy riding a dolphin. Her slimy and crooked boyfriend (Jorge Mistral) wants to sell it to an unscrupulous and wealthy art collector, but Phaedra wants to hand it over to an American anthropologist, Jim Calder (Ladd), who would return it to the Greek government, so it could be displayed in a prominent Greek museum.

Beautifully shot in Cinemascope by Milton R. Krasner (23 Paces to Baker Street) and directed by  Jean Negulesco (Daddy Long Legs), the movie will forever be identified as the one where the luscious Ms. Loren emerges from Aegean in a none-too-modest dripping wet shirt!
