Summary
"An American housewife vacationing in Italy reluctantly decides to put an end to her brief affair with an Italian academic. She flees to Rome's Stazione Termini, where she bids him farewell, yet he begs her to stay. The film's plot is simple; its production was not. The troubled collaboration between director Vittorio De Sica and producer David O. Selznick resulted in two cuts of the same film. De Sica's version, Terminal Station (Stazione Termini), was screened at a length of one-and-a-half hours, but after disappointing previews, Selznick severely re-edited it and changed the title to Indiscretion of an American wife without De Sica's permission
