Culver City, CA: RKO Radio Pictures, 1950. Vintage photograph on the set of the 1950 Italian film, showing director Roberto Rossellini with the camera and lighting crews setting up a wide shot, with Ingrid Bergman and other actors in the distance. With holograph pencil annotations on the verso regarding layout and noting the film's title.
After World War II, a Lithuanian refugee marries an Italian POW in order to be released from an internment camp, only to find herself miserable on the barren, volcanic island he calls home. A classic example of Italian neorealism, featuring documentary-esque footage from the island of Stromboli and footage from the island's evacuation during one of its many volcanic eruptions.
Set on Stromboli Island, shot on location in Lazio and Sicily, Italy.
9.5 x 7 inches. Very Good plus, with a pinhole to the lower right corner and light soil.
