George Peppard gets the girl (Inger Stevens) + her son + 15 million Francs in this 'poetic thriller'/suspense 'fairy tale'

Before watching this movie, I had never heard of Inger Stevens (1934-1970). She appeared in The Farmer's Daughter, Hang 'em High (with Clint Eastwood in 1968) and Madigan (with Henry Fonda). Here in House of Cards she is paired George Peppard as her son's 'nanny'. We follow their footsteps in a world of intrigue. Of course, at the end of the story, she gets the man.
I loved the scenes shot at the lake near Rome: the colors are wonderful, it's like you were there with the actors. The movie was shot on location in France and Italy.
The Fountain of Trevi (Rome) made famous by Fellini in La Dolce Vita appears in the film. It's the only funny scene in this otherwise 'poetic thriller' - the film is hard to classify. House of Cards is not the most famous movie in the world but it's a very good one.
George Peppard had a life before the A-Team; he made many movies and was the leading man in Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Carpetbaggers. His presence, boyish charm, incredible good looks and talent shine through House of Cards.

There is also Orson Welles, the clothes were designed by legendary costume designer Edith Head and there is the atmospheric music of Francis Lai. His score adds a 'fifth dimension' to the movie.
John Guillermin directed. This was his third collaboration with George Peppard as Peppard starred in The Blue Max and P. J.
Trivia: Look at the way George Peppard wore his wristwatch on screen and in real life.
Note: You can change the language from Italian to English in "setup" on the DVD.
