Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Aldo Fabrizi is the star of -- and, artistically, the raison d'etre for -- the Italian Professor, My Son. Fabrizi plays Orazio, a humble porter working in a prestigious school. Orazio labors tirelessly day and night so that his son (Giorgio de Lullo) can attend the school. Once the son has matriculated into a professor, he turns his back on Orazio, who is now socially unacceptable. Despite the sobriety of the proceedings, the film is more satirical than sad. Filmed in 1945 as Mio Figlio Professore, Professor My Son was released in the U.S. in 1949.
