Trivia

At the end of the movie, following the cast credits there is a theatrical re-issue trailer and a statement about the change of the title to: 'Passionate Sunday'. "After the critically successful opening in New York - in order to obtain bookings in commercial movie theaters - the film was cut, and, at the insistence of the exhibitors the title was changed to Passionate Sunday. The following trailer was produced for that commercial release." See more »

A fairly good drama.
30 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

That's the topic a director like Elia Kazan could have made, but perhaps in another manner. Anyway, this story of a young Greek immigrant just arrived in NY City is interesting, very well made, with touching characters. A good score too. I think it's off the records from the Hollywood archives, forgotten in some vaults somewhere in the world. I don't know how it came in my collection. And I don'y know if many people watched it. It's a shame. Not a masterpiece but deserving to be discovered. The - not really said - love story between the lead and the young gal is, as I said, very touching, not usual if we compare to other features.

A very good social drama, more than a genuine film noir.

Worth watching.
