Movie Info

Though fitted out with an English-language title, Black Holiday didn't receive much distribution outside its native Italy. Set during the 1930s, the film stars Adolfo Celi as an irrepressible anti-fascist professor. While the Mussolini government tolerates Celi so long as he remains within the walls of academia, the professor goes a few steps too far. He is subsequently "invited" to take a permanent vacation on a remote Mediterranean island. The absence of Black Holiday on the official list of Adolfo Celi's credits would suggest that this film was either never released theatrically or made for Italian television.
