Was this also known as “Warner’s Princess”? If so, a while after it had opened in New York in August of 1947, Vittorio De Sica’s film “Shoe Shine” played at Warner’s Princess for three weeks. That shattering neo-realist movie about the aftermath of World War II and life in a boys' prison was distributed at the time by Lopert Films, Inc.
