From Italy With Sadness

Little Richard "Get Rich Quick" (LP on Mr. Suit, Italy)

This ugly cover comes from Italy
Italy, how much I'm disappointed.  I'm sure this is the result of Ze Globalization extending its aeshetics all over the world. Italy, You have done so many beautiful things before. Until THAT.  

Speaking of beautiful things, I fondly remember the Italian neorealist movies from my childhood and specially one, "Riso Amoro" (Bitter Rice) from 1949, starring the beautiful Silvana Mangano.

Silvana Mangano

Francesca and Walter are two-bit criminals in Northern Italy, and, in an effort to avoid the police, Francesca joins a group of women rice workers. She meets the voluptuous peasant rice worker, Silvana, and the soon-to-be-discharged soldier, Marco. Walter follows her to the rice fields, and the four characters become involved in a complex plot involving robbery, love, and murder.
