Based on the Ferenc Molnar play Olympia, A Breath of Scandal serves as an elegant vehicle for a ravishing Sophia Loren. The star plays Princess Olympia, who despite her station in life cannot resist the urge to satisfy her sexual appetites. Exiled to the countryside, Olympia falls in love with American millionaire Charlie Foster (John Gavin). Meanwhile, a marriage of state is arranged between the princess and Prince Ruprecht of Prussia (Carlo Hintermann). Jealous rival Countess Lina (Angela Lansbury) endangers this union by threatening to tell all about Olympia and Foster.

IMDB Rating: 5.4/10

A cute, continental plot twist brings this harmless confection to a close. Maurice Chevalier dispenses his usual all-knowing glances and sly smiles as Olympia's understanding father. A Breath of Scandal was directed by Michael Curtiz, who uncharacteristically allows the pace to lag at crucial junctures. Scriptwriter Sidney Howard was credited with the script posthumously, some 21 years after his death. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

A Breath of Scandal, known as Olympia in Italy, is a 1960 film adapted from Ferenc Molnár's stage play Olympia. It stars Sophia Loren, Maurice Chevalier, John Gavin and Angela Lansbury and was directed by Michael Curtiz. The film is set at the turn of the 20th century and features lush technicolor photography of Vienna and the countryside of Austria. The costumes and lighting were designed by George Hoyningen-Huene and executed by Ella Bei of the Knize fashion house in Austria. Due in part to Michael Curtiz's direction which Sophia Loren was at odds with, Italian director Vittorio De Sica was hired to reshoot certain scenes with Loren after hours without Curtiz's knowledge.

Ms. Loren plays Olympia, the gorgeous spoiled princess of Vienna who is spending some time in comfortable exile, mainly because she's a flirty lil' thing who sometimes allows her libido to govern her brain. After whining her way through yet another morning of luxurious punishment, Princess Olympia takes her horse for a ride, bumps into a handsome American stranger who's there studying mineral deposits, and spends a (sex-free) night with the dashing hunk.

Obviously this potential scandal hits close to home once Olympia is invited back to Vienna; the dashing Charlie Foster visits the palace to discuss Vienna's bauxite deposits with Prince Philip (a.k.a. Olympia's daddy), thereby sparking a series of farcical moments that involve Olympia's betrothal to a total stranger, the scandal that may or may not arise from Charlie's arrival, and the inevitably happy ending that's in the cards for Chuck and Princess O.

It's all very story-book, sweet, and old-fashioned, which means that if you're old enough to have seen A Breath of Scandal during its 1960 theatrical run, you might find yourself enjoying the flick a lot more than the young'ens might – but the simple fact is that A Breath of Scandal, for all its sumptuous production design and Sophia-supplied sexiness, is about as engaging as a damp washcloth.

Leading man John Gavin delivers a performance that could best be described as "balsatic," as in: the guy's a block of wood. There's no sort of effusive charm or devil-may-care bravado from our hunky hero; the guy's a one-note line-reader for the whole of the film. Ms. Loren does manage to display her many charms, be they physical or otherwise, but her Princess Olympia is a rather wishy-washy little love interest. She wavers back and forth between "regal duty" and "true love" for about 65 minutes, but we're all well aware how this particular confection is going to be prepared: slowly, teasingly, and predictably.

It is based on the 1928 play Olympia rather than being a remake of the 1929 MGM film His Glorious Night.

Recovery Volumes (.rev)

Recovery volumes or .rev files are special files which can be created by WinRAR/RAR and allow you to reconstruct missing and damaged files in a volume set. They can
only be used with multi-volume archives.

This feature may be useful for backups or, for example, when you post a multivolume archive to a newsgroup and some of the subscribers did not receive some files. Reposting recovery volumes instead of usual volumes may reduce the total number of files to repost.

Each recovery volume is able to reconstruct one missing RAR volume. For example, if you have 30 volumes and 3 recovery volumes, you are able to reconstruct any 3 missing volumes. If the number of .rev files is less than a number of missing volumes, reconstructing is impossible. The total number of usual and recovery volumes must not exceed 255 and the number of recovery volumes must be less than the number of RAR volumes.

WinRAR reconstructs missing and damaged volumes either when clicking on .rev file, or when using rc command or automatically, if it cannot locate the next volume and finds the required number of .rev files when unpacking.

You may use the "Recovery volumes" option in the Archive name and parameters dialog or a similar option also appears in the Protect archive command to create recovery volumes. In the command line mode you may do it with -rv switch or rv command.

Original copies of damaged volumes are renamed to *.bad before reconstruction. For example, volname.part03.rar will be renamed to volname.part03.rar.bad.
