JESSICA...AN American GIRL IN A SMALL Italian VILLAGE
28 February 2005 | by diane1602See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the early sixties, and it was hysterical. Unfortunately, this movie has never been made for VHS or DVD. I wish they would put it out on VHS or DVD as it is a very funny movie about an American girl who goes to a Sicilian village and becomes the scandal of the town because all the women are sure that she is plotting to be with their husbands. Father Antonio is the town priest who is very funny. Jessica, the American girl, rides around on a motorbike which is very scandalous for a their small village. If they ever put this movie out on VHS or DVD be sure to see it if you have Sicilian or Italian ancestry, or if you just want to laugh a lot.
