Sophia Loren A SPECIAL DAY (1977) Award winning film! Marcello Mastroianni




A Special Day (Italian: Una giornata particolare) is a 1977 Italian language film which tells the story of a housewife and her neighbor who stay at home in Rome on the day that Adolf Hitler visits Benito Mussolini. It stars Sophia Loren, Marcello Mastroianni and John Vernon, as well as a special cameo appearance by Alessandra Mussolini, and was directed by Ettore Scola. The film was a co-production between companies in Italy and Canada.

Sophia Loren - Antonietta
Marcello Mastroianni - Gabriele
John Vernon - Emanuele, the husband of Antonietta
Alessandra Mussolini - Maria Luisa

Directed by Ettore Scola
Produced by Carlo Ponti

The day is May 8, 1938, the day when Hitler visited Rome to meet Italian premier Mussolini. Also on this day, as her entire family (including her fascist husband) goes to the streets to follow the great meeting and the parade, an Italian housewife (Loren) stays home looking after some domestic tasks. Her apartment building is empty but for a man (Mastroianni) who seems repulsed by fascism (a strange attitude in those days), living in the building across in the complex.

As this chamber drama progresses, and loneliness of each is revealed, the audience learns that this man is a radio broadcaster who has lost his job and is about to be deported to Sardinia, due to his political attitudes and his homosexuality. Unaware of this, the housewife flirts with him, as they meet by chance in the empty building. During their conversation, the rather naïve and mainstream woman is surprised by his opinions and finally shocked when she realizes his sexual orientation.

Nonetheless, despite their fights and arguments, a friendship develops and they eventually make love before he is taken away by the police and her family comes back home.



The film was a co-production between companies in Italy and Canada. The film received two nominations for Oscars in 1977: Best Actor in a leading role (Marcello Mastroianni) and Best Foreign Language Film.

The Cat and the Canary (1927, 1939, 1978) Bob Hope, Paulette Goddard, Carol Lynley, Honor Blackman, Laura La Plante




Silent film classic 1927 and 1978 camp-cult classic ...

The Cat and the Canary (1978) Carol Lynley, Honor Blackman
With Michael Callan, Edward Fox. Directed by Radley Metzger.

Frank Willard's 1927 stage play The Cat and the Canary was filmed several times before this 1978 version saw the light of day. In the story, Annabelle West (Carol Lynley) is one of several potential heirs to a huge fortune. Brought to his foreboding mansion to learn who will benefit from his death, the anxious heirs must sit still for the deceased's taped recitation of his bequests. The dead man, Cyrus West (Wilfred Hyde-White), takes advantage of the occasion to scold his greedy and unpleasant relatives. He leaves behind several posthumous practical jokes which drive his points home. It's a rainy night, the mansion is full of surprises, most of the heirs are an anxious, unpleasant lot, and at least one of them is not above committing murder to have his way. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide




The Cat and the Canary (1927) is an American silent horror film adaptation of John Willard's 1922 black comedy play of the same name. Directed by German Expressionist filmmaker Paul Leni, the film stars Laura La Plante as Annabelle West, Forrest Stanley as Charles "Charlie" Wilder, and Creighton Hale as Paul Jones. The plot revolves around the death of Cyrus West, who is Annabelle, Charlie, and Paul's uncle, and the reading of his will 20 years later. Annabelle inherits her uncle's fortune, but when she and her family spend the night in his haunted mansion they are stalked by a mysterious figure. Meanwhile, a lunatic known as "the Cat" escapes from an asylum and hides in the mansion.

The Cat and the Canary is part of a genre of comedy horror films inspired by 1920s Broadway stage plays. Paul Leni's adaptation of Willard's play blended expressionism with humor, a style Leni was notable for and critics recognized as unique. Leni's style of directing made The Cat and the Canary influential in the "old dark house" genre of films popular from the 1930s through the 1950s. The film was one of Universal's early horror productions and is considered "the cornerstone of Universal's school of horror." It has been remade five times.

Original Score by Brian Pinette




The Cat and the Canary (1939)

The Cat and the Canary starring Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard is a 1939 horror comedy film remake of the 1927 film The Cat and the Canary, which was based on the 1922 play of the same name by John Willard. The film was directed by Elliott Nugent.

Walt Disney "Alice Comedies" no-region DVD




ELEVEN "Alice Comedies" ... Alice appeared in the "Alice Comedies," a series of 56 silent cartoons made by Walt Disney between 1924 and 1927, with a live girl acting in Cartoonland. Walt first hired six-year-old Virginia Davis and then Dawn O'Day, Margie Gay, and Lois Hardwick to be the little Alice romping in a cartoon world. Enthusiastically, he sent out the first unfinished pilot film, "Alice's Wonderland," to cartoon distributors in New York. One of them, Margaret Winkler, agreed to distribute the series, with payment beginning at $1,500 per reel. The pilot film was made in Kansas City; all 56 of the remaining films in the series were made in Hollywood. Miss Winkler married Charles Mintz, and he continued to deal with Walt Disney until 1927, when Walt tired of combining live action and animation and Disney switched instead to the "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit" series.
