Excellent Film..(the English 'dubbed' version) as I recall
16 February 2015 | by GregP89See all my reviews

Excellent Film (the English 'dubbed' version) as I recall, in the Los Angeles / Southern California, region it was last shown on TV on KTLA (Channel 5) late night back in early 1980's. It is almost on par with Director David Leans' 'Lawrence of Arabia' and director Sergey Bondarchuk 'Waterloo' (Rod Steiger) as majestic Battlefield films capturing regalia, nationalistic unity, interwoven story lines, and excellent cinematography. To own a copy is a prize possession. That Director Vicente Minnelli was married to a US Entertainment icon did not deter him from paying tribute to his homeland (Italy) through this masterful film.
