In the Eighteenth Century, the "Traveling Company of Scenic Arts" composed of Tyrant, Lady Leonarde, Serafina, Isabella, Leandre, Zerbina, Matamore and Pulcinella gets lost while traveling to Paris in bad weather. They see a castle and ask the servant Pietro if they can spend the night. They soon learn that the destroyed castle belongs to the ruined nobleman Jean Luc Henry Camille, the Baron of Sigognac. Pietro asks the company to take Sigognac with them to Paris as King Luis XIII's father was saved by the baron's father, Henrique de Navarra, and Luis XIII would certainly reward Sigognac in gratitude. He also secretly gives one hundred gold coins to Pulcinella to serve Sigognac. Written by

IMDb should write into their software one little button that says, "If the studio would sell this film, I would BUY IT!" Then, if enough people signed up to buy a film, the studios could produce copies and sell them - or even sell them digitally online.
This excellent period film about the early traveling theatrical troupes of the Renaissance has not been available since its release, and I have been waiting for them to come out with a purchase copy. And it even stars the supreme actor Massimo Troisi, who was better in this than in Il Postino. Now is the time, since the studios can exploit the digital revolution by not having to produce and ship disks.
This is a moneymaker, folks! And with Facebuchenwald and other social networking sites, the number of people wanting to buy might grow exponentially.
So why doesn't IMDb do this?????
