British comedy drama linking the lives and stories of three very different people through their ownership of the same yellow Rolls Royce Phantom II. The first to own the car is Englishman Lord Charles Frinton (Rex Harrison), who buys it as a birthday present for his wife Lady Eloise Frinton (Jeanne Moreau). The car is then bought by gangster Paolo Maltese (George C Scott) to tour round Italy with his moll Mae Jenkins (Shirley MacLaine). In the middle of their journey, however, Paolo is called back to the United States to take care of business. In his absence Mae takes up with street photographer Stefano (Alain Delon) whom she falls in love with. The final purchase is by Gerda Millett (Ingrid Bergman), a wealthy American widow on her way to visit royalty in Yugoslavia during its invasion by the Nazi Germans in World War II...

In this drama, from director Anthony Asquith, the lives and stories of three different people are linked together by their possession of an unusual car, a yellow Rolls Royce Phantom II. Lord Frinton (Rex Harrison) is a diplomat who purchases the exquisite auto as a gift for his wife (Jeanne Moreau). After Frinton's horse wins the Royal Gold Cup, Lady Frinton incurs the Lord's wrath when she is caught in the back seat of the Rolls with his underling John Fane (Edmund Purdom). In the 1930s, the car is bought by Italian gangster Paolo Maltese (George C. Scott), who is carrying on with the hatcheck girl Mae Jenkins (Shirley MacLaine). The two take a tour of Italy and see all the historic sights, but Mae is less than impressed. While Paolo is in the United States on one of his frequent hit-man assignments, Mae and a street photographer try out the back seat for comfort and carnal pleasure. Art Carney plays Paolo's associate Joey. In the final episode, Gerda Millett (Ingrid Bergman) is the married American woman who buys the car in 1942. With Hitler attacking Yugoslavia the brave and brazen beauty helps fight the Nazis by smuggling Davich (Omar Shariff) across the border, and this duo also find themselves in the back seat for a roll in the Rolls.
