Sua giornata di gloria: "Most of this film consists of a dialogue between the members of an idealistic group of Marxist rebels who plan to wage war against the Establishment. Ironically, the determined rebels seem to have no clue why they are fighting against the unnamed European country. The viewer is left to assume they are fighting for a worthy cause, though the fact is, the rebels may only be rebelling because it is fashionable to be against the existing power structures"Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide

Tartufo by Cesare Garboli( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An adaptation of Molière's classic, 'Tartuffe' was first performed at The Kennedy Center, Washington DC, in May 1982. Gray's intention was to find, if possible, a completely English play that could pass under the original title, set in the original social and historical context. The Englishness of it was thus a matter of the psychology and the expression. The first entailed the transformation of some of the characters in order that it could be understood why they behave as they do. The second entailed that the characters should speak in a language that expressed the needs and fears of their natures
