This is one of my favorite movies with Anna Magnani, Tony Franciosa and Tony Quinn. If you find this movie anywhere, PLEASE, let me know and I will do the same for you! I have requested it at Turner Classic Movies and on AMC where I saw it for the first time! I will keep scanning those websites and if they put it on DVD, I will let you know! Thanks! Glad to see that somebody else appreciates this movie for the value that is in it! To me it is priceless!
This movie, in my opinion, is one of Anna Magnani's greatest works, along with a cast of the great Anthony Quinn and also great actor, Anthony Franciosa! I cannot wait until they put this movie on DVD! Thank You!
