Product Description

Description Ravishing and resourceful Carla "Campbell" (Gina Lollobriida) sure knows how to make the best of things. Once a frightened young girl, she's transformed herself into one of San Forino Italy's leading citizens. And thanks to generous support payments from three American GIs she met during WWII - each of whom thinks he's the father of her child - Gina is set for life! But now, the 23rd Regiment is hosting a 20-year reunion in San Forino. All three "fathers" are on their way to town and, much to Mrs. Campbell's frantic dismay, daughter Gia (Janet Margolin) can't wait to meet her real dad!

One of my favourite films. Yes, Mama Mia was based on the idea in this, it is acknowledged. I have owned a video cassette copy from TV for many years and was pleased to be able to buy a DVD version at last. Spanish origin was no problem, English version easily navigated. However: picture quality is very poor, blurring on close-ups and difficulty in making out some background features,colours look unnatural (especially when compared with the VCR) to the extent that I wondered if I had been sold a pirated copy, but apparently not. Don't buy, wait until its on TV then download it for a decent reproduction

This is a very funny and amusing little film made in the Sixties, wonderful farce and brillant and funny acting from all the casts, especially my favorite Gina Lollobrigida. She is brilant in this film, with also the marvelous Shirley Winters, Lee Grant, Phil Silver, Peter Lawford and Telly Savalas all fantastic and beautifully shot somewhere in Italy ( Bela ) The only downside is that the pictures quality is not as brillant as it should be, wish it would would be release in better quality than this. I have seen it on TV not so long ago and the quality was much better, hence only 3 stars. Awaiting for the better one on release and hope not too long please...

A nice little film from simpler times,with a stellar cast who all went on to greater things.
In seeing this film,I couldn't help but notice that current hit musical "mamma mia" bears more than a passing resemblance to the story line of Buona Sera!I wonder if the lawyers of Buona Sera have seen Mamma Mia?The similarities are very frequent and detailed ,maybe pure coincidence ?

For almost twenty years, an Italian woman (Gina Lollobrigida) and her daughter (Janet Margolin) have been supported by the monthly checks of three American men (Phil Silvers, Telly Savalas, Peter Lawford). Though none of the men know about the other, each of them believes he is the father of the girl since all three men were intimate with the mother during a ten day period during WWII. But when a twenty year reunion occurs, all three men return to Italy (along with their wives) hoping to see their daughter. That's when the fun starts! This giddy farce is reminiscent of the classic screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s. While it may lack the elegance and wit of an AWFUL TRUTH or reach the madcap hysterics of BRINGING UP BABY, it's close enough so that any quibbling is minor. Lollobrigida is gorgeous but it's the supporting players who shine. In particular, the inspired casting of Shelley Winters and Silvers as a perfectly match married couple, each of them doing impeccable double takes. Savalas as a loud American and Lee Grant as his brassy wife keep it up too. The film's plot was unofficially usurped for the musical MAMMA MIA!. Directed by Melvin Frank. With Phillippe Leroy, Marian McCargo and Naomi Stevens.

The Australian DVD courtesy of Shock video is a nice anamorphic wide screen (1.85) transfer. Since it's region 0, it should play in all DVD players without a problem.

A riotous comedy starring Gina Lollobrigida, Telly Savalas, and many others. In wartorn Italy a glamorous woman has affairs with several US servicemen whom she later claims are the father or her child. Unbeknown to each other, the men agree to send maintenance payments to support what they believe is their offspring. Many years later things come to a head when a re-union is organised in the Italian town where the men served.........

Probably the story which gave the writers the idea for Mama Mia, this is an entertaining film about 3 former soldiers who return to Italy to meet the daughter each of them has been financially supporting for 18 years without knowing of the existence of the other two possible fathers.Plenty of slapstick action and misunderstanding with a fairly predictable outcome. Beginning to show its age but still a fun movie.

Gorgeous1960s film, with the lovely Gina Lollobrigida. The story centres round the 3 American GIs who were in Italy during the war, all of whom could potentially be the father of Gina's daughter. Wonderful stars like Phil Silvers, Peter Lawford, Shelley Winters and Telly Savalas add to the fun. Have waited a long time to get this on DVD and although it is from Spain, the original English soundtrack is there - though you could watch it dubbed in Spanish as well.

Saw this film in the cinema when it first came out and thought it was great. After seeing stage show of Mamma Mia I was struck by the similarity to 'buena sera mrs campbell' and tried to source the DVD. The film is now very dated and the picture quality isn't great but I loved it, probably more for nostalgia than any other reason
