There is an Italian movie called Mondo di notte made in 1959. The title
translated is "World by Night." It had a sequel in 1961. Could it be the same
thing? No mention is made of an Angela Lambert in the credits, but the
information is very sparse. And a search under Angela Lambert's name yielded
only two citations from the 1990s. I found this info. in the Internet Movie
Database (

Hope this helps.
