This was an alternate title for "Noi Vivi" ("We The Living"), the Italian wartime filming of the 1936 novel of Ayn Rand's, which dealt with the social costs of the 'noble experiment' of Stalin's Russia. Rossano Brazzi is remembered in the States for "Three Coins In The Fountain" and "South Pacific", while Valli did at least one film with Orson Welles and Carol Reed and had a supporting role in Dario Argento's "Suspiria" (although primarily working in Italy, practically to the present day).
