PAGLIACCI (1948) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

Mario Costa Writers: Carlo Castelli, Mario Costa | 3 more credits » Stars: Tito Gobbi, Gina Lollobrigida, Onelia Fineschi

Pagliacci recounts the tragedy of Canio, the lead clownin a commedia dell'arte troupe; his wife Nedda; and her lover, Silvio. When Nedda spurns the advances of Tonio, another player in the troupe, he tells Canio about Nedda's betrayal. In a jealous rage, Canio murders both Nedda and Silvio. The only actor in the cast who also sang his role was the celebrated Italian baritone, Tito Gobbi; but the film is, overall, very faithful to its source material, presenting the opera nearly completely.

DVD-r is in Italian with hard-encoded English subtitles. Approx. 67 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
