Anthony Quinn and Sophia Loren star as longtime widower Frank and recently widowed Rose, lonely hearts who discover something special in The Black Orchid, a sensitive comedy romance directed by Martin Ritt (Norma Rae, Murphy's Romance). What they discover is each other - and a love that restores joy in their lives. Yet before they can say "I do," Frank's daughter says "No you don't!" With all the heart and courage they possess, Frank and Rose work to win over his daughter and to rescue Rose's son from a path that has him headed for reform school. Love may be better the second time around... but for Frank and Rose it's also a lot more complicated!
