Jessica

A Feature film by Jean Negulesco, Oreste Palella

Release in France : 22/06/1962

    Synopsis

    Jessica (Angie Dickinson), a voluptuous midwife, has a great effect on the small Sicilian town in which she currently resides. Jessica is an American whose intentions may be charitable but whose physical attractions raise the libido of the men in town. Potential moms decide it is better to forego pregnancy by foregoing sex (this is a Catholic town) rather than have Jessica show up to deliver a baby. Meanwhile, the town priest (Maurice Chevalier), in his wisdom, directs Jessica's attention to the handsome widowed Marquis who lives in a charming castle, all alone -- anything to bring normal marital relations back on track.
