Rossellini’s “Woman” (“Desiderio”) plus Gassman in “Shamed” (“Preludio d'amore”.) An Italian double bill that circulated widely, if slowly, during the 1950s and early 1960s.

The film was withdrawn by the management after the Saturday matinee showing for insufficient business. And it’s such a wonderful movie!

The film with Jack Lemmon and Virna Lisi had to have been the 1965 “How to Murder Your Wife.”

“La voce del sangue” could be “Catene invisibili,” 1942, which has Alida Valli, Carlo Ninchi and Carlo Campanini together. Chi lo sa?

This was a 1950 16mm film not shown in theatres but instead presented in parish halls, schools, and community buildings. It was shot in California.
