"Gold of Naples"
Directed by Vittorio de Sica
Vittorio de Sica
directed the four vignettes comprising this famous omnibus film set in the old section of
Naples. With a script by Cesare Zavattini, the film exhibits the new style de Sica
developed after turning away from neo-realism. The Racketeer stars Toto as a poor
soul bullied by his wife and children, Pizza on Credit stars Sophia Loren as the
young wife of a pizza baker; The Gambler stars de Sica as a man whose rich wife
will not give him money to satisfy his gambling urge, and Teresa stars Silvana
Mangano as a prostitute trapped into marriage with a strange young gentleman.
