In Italian with English subtitles. Also known as The Condemned of Altona. Widescreen.

Vittorio De Sica's version of a play by Jean-Paul Sartre stars Fredric March as Albrecht von Gerlach, the owner of one of Germany's biggest industrial firms. Albrecht calls for his son Werner (Robert Wagner), a lawyer who is married to an actress, Johanna (Sophia Loren). The aging Albrecht wants Werner to take over the family business, but Werner is not interested, as he knows that the company helped to build the Nazi war machine that caused the deaths of millions of people. Werner, however, was not first in the line of succession; his older brother Franz (Maximilian Schell) was running the company for his father during the war, and as a result he was cited for war crimes and executed. Or so everyone believes.

5 of 5 Love it! January 24, 2019
Reviewer: Ray M from NY United States  
I bought 10 Sophia Loren movies from the 1950's that I could not find any where else. Not only are the movies beautiful, but they also have English subtitles, which are impossible to find with these old Italian films. You have so many more classics that I will be buying once I get through these 10 magnificent films!
Grazie mille!

4 of 5 Not bad; worth it for those who haven't seen it January 18, 2017
Reviewer: Patrick Hunter from Panorama City, CA United States  
Some splices occur in a scene when Sophia takes her top off making one wonder if some projectionist cut out a few frames for himself from the print.  Also, one can spot Italian subtitles that are bubbled out for the English ones in the scenes when German gets spoken.  Otherwise, this is an acceptable anamorphic transfer of the drama.
