Overview

Carosello Napoletano was the first major Italian musical of the postwar era. The title, which translates to Neopolitan Carousel, refers to a family of street singers. The story covers a century or so in the lives of this family, with ample screen time given over to romance and heartbreak. Basically an "inventory musical," the film spotlights several well-known Neopolitan tunes, given sprightly performances by the cast. The uncredited voice of famed tenor Beniamino Gigli is heard from time to time for the benefit of his legions of fans. At 125 minutes, Carosello Napoletano tends to wear on the viewer at times, though lovers of popular Neopolitan music and dance will get their fill.

Sophia Loren (Born Sofia Villani Scicolone at the Clinica Regina Margherita in Rome on September 20, 1934) is truly an International Film Star !
This Collection demonstrates why Sophia Loren remains one of the true living Legends of the Film Industry, her exceptional talents are on full display.
The films are:

AROSELLO NAPOLETANO-1953
ATTILA-1954
MADAME SANS-GENE-1962
I GIRASOLI-1970 / The Music by HENRY MANCINI is wonderful.

The Set is Nicely packaged. The Quality of the Movies are exceptional. The extra is a well-made featurette that centers on Loren's work, primarily in the four films presented in the collection.
Put this set on your must-have list !
