Umberto D. (1952)-A masterpiece directed by the great Vittorio De Sica!

On TCM very late11/27/16-One of my favorite movies is a film called Umberto D. (1952). Some (including Martin Scorcese) cite as this film about a poor retired Italian civil servant and his dog as the high-water mark of the Italian Neo Realism cinema. It is directed by the great Vittorio De Sica who was so good that in this film he got a performance worthy in my opinion of a best supporting actor Oscar from the dog-Catch the heart breaking scene where the dog begs to supplement his best friend’s pension
