Whoopsie.

I stand corrected; the title here is indeed the part II title for the original release in WW2 Italy, not a later, alternate, earlier or renamed title. Other facts are accurate to the best of my current knowledge.

Although still pretty expensive (still at this writing about twice the price of, say, "Ayn Rand: A Sense Of Life"), and not to my knowledge released in DVD yet, it's still a great buy. This film is, in addition to its unique specifics, an artifact of what I judge the superior artistic sensibility of an earlier, more civilized time. Obtain and enjoy!
