Its title translating as Naples of Former Days, this Italian musical romance takes an bittersweet backward glance at the 19th century. Vittorio de Sica plays Maestro Perla, who hopes to arise from poverty to become a renowned composer and symphony conductor. He is helped along by a mysterious benefactor (Emma Gramatica) who turns out to be his aunt. On the verge of fame and fortune, Perla is disappointed romantically when the family of his wealthy fiancee (Elisa Regard) opposes the impending marriage. Realizing that he'll be happier in his own back yard, Perla returns to his hardscrabble Neapolitan neighborhood and to his childhood sweetheart (Maria Dennis).
