Italian director Aldo Vergano is best remembered for his 1947 film Il Sole Sorge Ancoral/Outcry, a tribute to those who sacrificed their lives in the Italian Resistance. Originally a journalist, the strongly anti-Fascist Vergano left the profession when Mussolini took over Italy in the early '20s. From there, he worked a number of jobs until the early '30s when he began collaborating on screenplays. Vergano made his feature-film directorial debut in 1937.
