Today the Stranger Suggests

posted by on March 22 at 14:03 PM


This 1962 Italian release is charming then funny then sad. An exuberant Sicilian son—who moved to Milan to become a factory efficiency expert—takes his new family to meet his toothless parents, mustachioed sister, and the local Don, who ensnares him in an improbable plot. It’s sweet with a bitter moral, like crushed aspirin at the heart of a bonbon—whether in industrial Milan or mafioso Sicily, we cannot escape being part of vast machines.

Ohh, speaking of Italian made movies from the early to mid 60's. All you gay guys out there Tab Hunter did a few of those and he looks rather hot in most of them. Bad actor but great eye candy!

Wnat to be entertained for hours with 60s and 70s genre movie soundtracks and titles with free samples. Look no further and see in stunning detail what our own couped up world had deprived us(astinishingly even censored) from learning about in Telivision and Cinema the last 50 years. Great movie by the way. i've got lots of those kind of classics in my collections.
