White Amazons

White Amazons (Italian: Amazzoni bianche) is a 1936 Italian comedy film directed by Gennaro Righelli and starring Paola Barbara, Luisa Ferida and Doris Duranti. Screwball in style, it is part of the tradition of schoolgirl comedies of the Fascist era.[1] It is set in a winter sports resort, where an all-female race with a prize of two hundred thousand lira for the winner provokes rivalry and confusions.
