LADRI DI BICICLETTA (1948)

The prototype of the postwar European realism, it is a very simple movie about the cycle of poverty that worked way better for me than I would have thought.

ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948)

An extremely stupid movie, but in an enjoyable way. It teams up the famous comedy duo with the most famous Universal monsters, including Bela Lugosi’s last appearance as Dracula.

THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948)

A story where three very grizzled dudes find gold in the wilderness and it drives them all nuts. A manly man’s parable about greed.
