Rossellini’s “Woman” (“Desiderio” - 1946) plus Gassman in “Shamed” (“Preludio d'amore” - 1946) An Italian double bill that circulated widely, if slowly, during the 1950s and early 1960s.
“The Skipper Surprised His Wife.”
It takes its title from Rossellini’s visionary “Voyage to Italy,” (Journey to Italy; Strangers) 1954, with Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders.
Martin Scorsese’s stunning documentary on the Italian cinema should serve for many as a primer on that topic. It can easily be found on DVD.
In 1943 probably.
In 1956 probably.
On the marquee are two 1944 films.
Marquee. Is that “The Covered Wagon”? (1923)
The Moon Theatre has its own page as the Gaiety.
This was the early sound period revival of the film, trimmed down, and fitted with a music track, but otherwise essentially the same as the 1915 original.
From the column “Eugene Henry Huffman Observes,” Page 8.
A 1974 image.
“Two Hearts in Harmony” and “The Lost City” were 1935 films.
Capture from “The Street with No Name,” 1948. Marc Stephens.
A three-episode film created by distributor Joseph Burstyn. It consisted of “A Day in the Country” by Jean Renoir, “Jofroi” by Marcel Pagnol, and “The Miracle” by Roberto Rossellini. “The Miracle” became banned and in a case that went to the Supreme Court, the theatre and distributor won, with a ruling asserting that film is a form of free speech.
This might have been the world premiere run.
Rare early booking of this duo.
