Heller in Pink Tights:
Inspired by a novel by best-selling Western author Louis L'Amour, Heller In Pink Tights brings the curtain up on the traveling Healy Dramatic Company, a barnstorming 1880s theatrical troupe that spends part of its time emoting on stage - and most of its time fending off confrontational townfolf, irate creditors and suspicious sheriffs. Desperate to find a more flamboyant act to keep their audience entertained, the ensemble's leaders, Angela Rossini (Sophie Loren) and Tom Healy (Anthony Quinn), put the "Wild" in Wild West with their comic misadventures.
Desire Under the Elms:
Eugene O'Neill's riveting play about a family torn apart by greed explodes onto the screen in a soaring film version starring Anthony Perkins and Sophia Loren. Perkins is the farmer's son Eben, awaiting the day he will inherit the land from his tyrannical, widowed father (Burl Ives). But when passions erupt in a fiery night of lust and fury between Eben and his new stepmother (Sophia Loren, in her Hollywood film debut). With a sweeping scor by Elmer Bernstein, Desire Under The Elms sizzles with a heated story of passion unleashed and temptation unbridles, and a heavy price paid for the pleasures of sin.
A Breath of Scandal:
It's 1907 in Vienna, the "City of the Waltz." Beautiful Sophia Loren is the Austrian princess who, despite her exile from the familial estate for "scandalous indiscretions," scorns her mother's wish to marry a prince. Instead, she sets her sights on handsome John Gavin, a visiting American mining engineeer who has garnered the approval of her father (Maurice Chevalier) as well. Michael Curtiz directs, and Angela Lansbury provides icy snap as a scheming countess. With the elaborate costumes and sumptuous decor of Viennese society, A Breath of Scandal is a breezy, charming and refreshing romantic comedy that sets Emperor Franz Joseph's court abuzz with unrestrained gossip!
