Rossano Brazzi Filmography

É caduta una donna (1940)

"A Woman Has Fallen"


Initially, we were relatively sure that the titular "fall" refered to her moral decline or some such, and not to her inability to remain upright on an icy sidewalk. Nonetheless ... the one movie still we've found for this film has a woman lying unconscious in a hospital bed, with a rather astonishing full face of make-up, so perhaps the synopsis for this film ought to read, "A woman is not able to remain upright on an icy sidewalk, but is wealthy enough to afford Max Factor as a personal retainer".

A still from É caduta una donna - unfortunately without Rossano Brazzi in the photo.

Notes
Zavattini also worked on Silenzio, si gira!, La grande aurora, Il Passatore, Sette volta donna and, coincidentally, Caccia alla volpe, the cast of which included Rossano's first wife, Lydia Brazzi.
Pesce also worked on I dieci comandamenti
Gora also appeared in I dieci comandamenti, I contrabbandieri del mare ... and that great film classic, "Gidget Goes To Rome." (Don't panic, Rossano wasn't in any "Gidget" movies, we just felt like mentioning it.)
Isa Miranda, born Ines Isabella Sampietro, was a very prolific Italian actress, but you may remember her as Signora ("I scarcely ... know her.") Fiorini, in the movie Summertime. She was married to director Guarini.
Tamberlani also worked on I dieci comandamenti, La Monaca di Monza, Il Passatore and Io é Caterina.
