Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In Italian with English subtitles. This is the uncut Italian version, with a run time of 2h 11m.

Vittorio De Sica, Cesare Zavattini, and Giuseppe Marotta wrote this anthology of tales depicting various aspects of Neapolitan life, with the emphasis of poignancy and comedy: "The Racketeer" features Toto with a gangster as his unwanted house guest; "Pizza On Credit" gave Sophia Loren one of her first starring roles, as a wayward wife who loses her wedding ring; "The Gambler" stars De Sica in a hilarious performance as a compulsive gambler whose rich family won't give him money, so he's reduced to playing cards with the young son of his servant; "Theresa" features Silvana Mangano as a prostitute who discovers that a man really does have to be crazy to marry her.

L'Oro di Napoli January 25, 2018
Reviewer: Marius Kociejowski from London, England United Kingdom  
A most unusual film for anyone interested, as I am, in Naples, this being the Naples of another time. If you are looking for action or plots this is not the film for you, but if you are looking for slices of real life, then it most certainly is. Sophia Loren, in an early role, is very good but Silvana Mangano is unforgettable, especially in the final long take. This film was an early instance of the great Italian verismo film-making.

Reviewer: Michael Fischetti from New York, NY United States  
This ia a great print. The subtitles are as clear as a bell as is the print. Do you ever have any special discount sales? I am very pleased with your product.
