I cannot believe I unearthed this treasure in the public domain. Unless there is a special promotion going on, any and all films I run must be in the public domain.
Sophia Loren is magnificent in this role. She plays a woman trying to protect her teenaged daughter from the horrors of war. Loren won an Academy Award (when it meant something) for Best Actress, the first time an actress won an acting award for a non-English speaking role.
The film also stars Jean-Paul Belmondo, Eleonora Brown, Carlo Ninchi and Andrea Checchi.
If you watch it, play particular attention to the scene in the truck. Sophia Loren’s performance after the brutal attack on her daughter is one of the most moving, devastating pieces of acting I have ever scene. Watch her face. Ugh.

The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
