27. Open City (Roma, citta aperta)

Description: Working behind barred door and cellars, a group of Italians created this movie about the horrors of the Nazi occupation in Rome during WWII.

28. Pajama Game

Description: The Pajama Game became the first in a string of smash hits for visionary choreographer Bob Fosse soon after it opened on Broadway in May of 1954. The play opened to rave reviews and was performed well over 1000 times. So when it came time to re-purpose it for the silver screen, Warner Bros. decided to basically lift the entire production from the stage at the St. James Theater and transport it to the sound stage in Hollywood. The female lead was changed from Janis Paige to Doris Day for box-office reasons and a couple of minor roles were switched out but, all-in-all what we see in the film is a faithful replication of the original Broadway production and a level of ensemble seldom seen on film. If you can stop being soooo sophisticated and are ready, willing and able to dispend reality for a little while, you will really enjoy this wonderful piece of period fluff.

Nice animation - a good clean fun American Holiday celebration featuring the pride of the U.S. Navy, Popeye. Also of note - for some reason, the nephews have been reduced to 2 from 4.
