excellent fantasy Italian film. As I am Italian, Italians are not that generous.
I’ve never seen any of Vittorio’s 1930s light comedy films before nor viewed him as a young debonair leading man prior to his greatness as a director. This makes your site so worthwhile and I’m really appreciative of it.
