The final scene is supposed to take place early in the morning, but it was filmed in the afternoon, because of the sun position over the West Coast of Tuscany. Filming in the morning hours would have resulted in backlight problems. See more »
I saw this film 30 years or more at a university screening. It's probably never been released on videotape and may never be on DVD. I remember it as an affecting drama of a relationship/affair between an Italian girl and an afro-American GI (Kitzmiller). Both characters are sympathetic, with the Italian girl eventual drawn into prostitution by the difficult conditions of a receding World War II. Yet it is those conditions, with the Americans now an occuppying force in Italy, that bring the two together in a way probably impossible but for war. This film could be, I suppose, "neo-realist," and would be nice to "revisit" again to confirm my initial good impression of it.
