We just got word of a new DVD label being formed here in the US. Under the name NoShame Films this label has been formed by long-time DVD producer Joyce Shen, who has a long list of credits working on Anchor Bay and Blue Underground titles, and Italian filmmaker Michele DeAngelis. The company has been stated with the commitment to bring Italian cinema that made movie history to the U.S. home theater.
The official launch of the label will be in April when NoShame films will release the two Italian masterpieces and Sophia Loren vehicles, Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow and Bocciaccio 70 on DVD.
Vittorio De Sica’s “Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow” starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroiann won the Oscar for best foreign film in 1964. It was Loren’s famed striptease that gave the movie its notoriety and enormous box office success.
“Bocciaccio 70” is the bawdy celebrated anthology film directed by Frederico Fellini, Luchino Visonti, Mario Monicelli, and Vittorio De Sica, boasting a host of international stars, inclugin Sophia Loren, Romy Schneider, Tomas Milian and Anita Eckberg. The Monicelli segment was cut out of the original US release of the film and No Shame is proud to present its long-overdue premiere in a 2-disk DVD set.
