Hit Me With Your Best Shot: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (1963)

This week in Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Nathaniel introduced me to Vittorio De Sica’s Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. I’m not gonna lie and pretend that I’m not a little annoyed by the lack of an oxford comma in the movie’s English title, but otherwise, this is an incredibly lovely movie. 610 more words
