More than a Miracle (1967) - (Sophia Loren) Argentine one-sheet
This is a 27" x 39" Argentine promotional poster for the 1967 Francesco Rosi film More than a Miracle based loosely on a collection of 50 fairy tales called Pentamerone assembled in the 17th Century by Giambatista Basile and published posthumously in 1634 and 1636 by his sister Adriana. The collection was incorporated with acknowledgements into the third edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales (1847) and Wilhelm Grimm praised it as the first national collection of fairy tales. The screenplay is by Tonino Guerra, Raffaele La Capria and Francesco Rosi. Sophia Loren stars as Isabella Candeloro and Omar Sharif stars as Prince Rodrigo Fernandez. Plot summary: Prince Rodrigo is ordered by the king to choose a wife from among seven princesses, but falls for the lowly peasant girl Isabella instead.
Cast and crew: Sophia Loren, Omar Sharif, Dolores Del Rio, Georges Wilson, Francesco Rosi, Tonino Guerra, Marina Malfatti
