Thread Name: June Tabor Discussion
Subject: RE: June Tabor Discussion
Got news for you whippersnappers: Anna Magnani was one of the greatest actresses of the post-war international cinema. Her debut I believe was in Rosselini's "Open City" (1945).

I don't know about that personal stuff, but she had a dramatic and sultry screen presence.

As for June Tabor, she takes a sentimental stinkeroo like "Roses in Picardy" and turns it into genuinely moving experience.

I don't think even Anna Magnani could do that.

Tabor's "Silly Sisters" album with Maddy Prior is well worth anybody's time. Two great voices.
