Is all fair in love and war? Marcello Mastroianni finds out in "White Nights" (1957), an adaptation of a 19th century Fyodor Dostoevsky story. A clerk, played by Mastroianni, meets a beautiful woman, played by Maria Schell, on a canal bridge late one night. Schell is upset that her lover, played by Jean Marais, has stood her up, and asks Mastroianni to deliver a note to his hotel, but Mastroianni, who has fallen in love with Schell, works on winning her for himself.
