Never on Sunday (Greek: Ποτέ την Κυριακή, Poté tin Kyriakí) is 1960 Greek black-and-white, romantic comedy film. The film tells the story of Ilya, a self-employed, free-spirited prostitute who lives in the port of Piraeus in Greece, and Homer, an American tourist and classical scholar who is enamored of all things Greek. Homer feels Ilya’s life style typifies the degradation of Greek classical culture, and attempts to steer her onto the path of morality, while, at the same time, Ilya attempts to loosen Homer up. It constitutes a variation of the Pygmalion plus “hooker with a heart of gold” story.
