The Fortunate Pilgrim

"Excellent movie. Originally seen on TV many, many years ago. Finally able to purchase a copy. The story of an Italian family's immigration to the U.S. and all of their sacrifices, sorrows and joys. Able to visualize my own family's immigration and early life in U.S."

"Based on Mario Puzo's best book, this is a masterpiece. I have read the book twice and never thought the film would come close but it does. From the opening scene with the voice of Pavorotti singing over the street noise to the wonderful ending it is a great story of a wonderful Italian mother who is going to make it in America for her family. Sophia Loren is amazing. If you are of Italian heritage or just know an Italian; you must see this!"

"This product was exactly what I want and what I was searching for since a very long time. I'm glad to know that I can find everything in your website. The DVD I've purchased is perfect and the movie was perfect too. Sophia Loren did a great job in this movie. I really loved the way she presented the story and made me feel that she is not acting at all. I recommand this movie for everybody who admire Sophia Loren and who wants to not only watch a movie but live within it."
