Film Notes

It was a remake of a film from ten years prior, in which Alida “replaced” Elsa De Giorgi, who originally played the protagonist. Though the director reproduced the same sets and even some shots, too much water had passed under the bridge for the public not to feel disappointed by the story of a seduced and abandoned girl, contended by a despicable, rich man and by a young man from the beauty center where she works, with an obvious inclination to- wards the latter and a resultant wedding at the end. While the first version is marked by humorous-sentimental tones (though nonetheless showing moments of sincere indignation and accusation), the second version is characterized by moralistic-sentimental tones that prove, according to some critics, “a bit stale”. The film constitutes the sole meeting between Valli and her friend Camerini, a director who could have perhaps created more adequate roles for her and surely made better use of her sensitivity.
