Stromboli: The Peak Of Neo-Realism

If your cable package of choice includes TCM (Turner Classic Movies) it would behoove you to know that tomorrow is a day devoted entirely to her highness Ingrid Bergman (we're not worthy!!!) and that at 7:15 AM (CST) (adjust your time accordingly) they are airing her performance of boundless brilliance in then future-husband Roberto Rosellini's "Stromboli." This is critical because it is one of Ingrid's three finest performances (which is like saying it's one of Shakespeare's three finest sonnets or one of Springsteen's three finest songs) and "Stromboli" anymore is essentially impossible to find on DVD. This is your chance! DO NOT miss it. DVR it, call in sick, something, anything! You gotta see this one.

Acting gets no better.
