I’LL GIVE A MILLION
Monday, September 21
Darò un milione (1935, Mario Camerini) So why’s everybody being so nice to bums? For the possible million franc prize: rich but despondent De Sica decides to skip suicide and rescue a tramp from his own attempt, then switches roles with him. But there’s luminous circus performer Assia Noris in the future, in this unsung 30s comedy classic from Vittorio’s mentor Camerini. Zavattini’s first screenplay. Approx. 79 min. DCP.
