We offer no guarantee that you will or will not have tracking problems with this videotape. Attention: On older vhs videos (pre-1990) very few were re-mastered for sound quality.

Tagline: Loren and Mastroianni together again in a very special movie.
The film is set during the late 1930s: the occasion is the first meeting between Mussolini and Hitler. The "Special Day" is May 8, 1939. Left alone in her tenement home when her fascist husband runs off to attend the historic event, Sophia Loren strikes up a friendship with her gay neighbor Mastroianni. As the day segues into night, Loreon and Mastroianni develop a very special relationship that will radically alter both of their outlooks on life. In addition, check out my other RARE out-of-print hard-to-find videos currently up for bid. Many are out-of-print and not available on DVD. Win a bunch and have a RARE MOVIE marathon!
TRIVIA: GOOFS: Anachronisms: Hitler's address, heard in the background, is not from his visit to Rome but from the 1934 Nuremberg Party Meeting, more particularly from his address to the German Youth on the third day. He's heard summoning them to be "strong and peaceful", "courageous and peace-loving".
Since this is long gone and out-of-print, grab it while you can!

IMPORTANT: All items must be paid for within 5 days of end of auction. If payment is NOT received within 5 days of auction ending, a Non-Paying Bidder alert process will begin. * Please don't be, what I call, a BIDIOT! A "bidiot" is one who bids on an auction and does not pay. * Bids from users with a minus feedback rating or many negative feedbacks may be rejected. DO NOT bid if you lack the means to finalize your transaction. View seller's other auctions and add to your favorites/bookmark page. From time to time I will add more RARE, out-of-print titles. Good luck and happy bidding!
If you mistakenly bid on this item or bid too high, it is your responsibility to retract the bid, we cannot do it for you. If the auction has ended, retraction is not an option. If your child bids on this item, using your account, you are responsible for his or her actions.
Since a recent MORON created a fraudulent eBay account to bid on one of my auctions for the sole purpose of leaving a negative feedback, I am now prohibiting any eBay users with less than a (10) feedback rating to bid on my auctions. Unfortunately, this is not very fair to those of you who are truly honest and are just beginning your experience on eBay. Certain exceptions can be made if you want to bid. Such as those to whom I have sold in the past will be permitted to bid. If you have never bid on any of my prior auctions, then you must e-mail me first. Anyone, with under (10) feedback, who does place a bid on my auctions (without contacting me first) will have their bid removed. All this because one bad egg wanted to try and ruin it for everyone else. I do apologize to all of you new users who are truly honest.
Please read feedback terms before bidding
FEEDBACK POLICY: As a seller, I do not give a buyer a feedback immediately after payment is received. Nor do I give out feedback first. Because it is ultimately the buyer's decision if the transaction was completed in a professional, courteous and timely matter. Feedback will only be given in response to the buyer's feedback given to me. Sorry, but there have been just too many times that I gave a feedback first and never received one. As a buyer, I do follow this rule. The end result of any transaction should be the customer's satisfaction which should be reflected in the feedback leaving process. If you do not agree with this and will not leave positive feedback after a successful transaction, please do NOT bid!
