Don Bosco (1935 film)

Don Bosco is a 1935 Italian drama film directed by Goffredo Alessandrini and starring Gianpaolo Rosmino, Maria Vincenza Stiffi and Ferdinando Mayer. The film is a portrayal of the life of the Catholic Priest John Bosco (1815–1888). It was made by Riccardo Gualino's Lux Film, one of the bigger Italian companies of the era.[1] Alessandrini later went on to direct a later, more celebrated biopic of a nineteenth century religious figure with his Cardinal Messias (1939).
