Comment: Andrea Balestri in a green sailor suit (pictured) and other historical clothes (also with a pointed hat). Good film (maybe the best version) of this famous classic novel. I have seen this movie once or twice some years ago, but can’t remember all scenes. As he also wears lots of other clothes I assume rather few or medium sailor suit scenes. I like this film and the green sailor suit is something special (though doesn’t look very elegant), but the boy is very young. So rating 5 only, but I hope for a soon TV broadcasting. Directed by Luigi Comencini, costumes designed by Piero Gherardi. Not sure of other good actors and I will also check other Pinocchio films. Green sailor suits also appeared in “The Sound of Music”, see that entry.

Directed by Luigi Comencini.
