This installment of the Cherry's Back Story: Reel People at the Cherry film screenings chooses Italian neorealist director Roberto Rossellini and his General della Rovere, paired with a talk by local film and TV veteran Peter Baldwin. Rossellini is receiving a kind of revival, led by his TV series about Louis XIV. General tells the story of a small-time thief who's recruited by Nazis to impersonate Italian resistance leader General della Rovere among resistance prisoners in Milan. Baldwin was signed by Paramount in the 1950s, acted in Stalag 19 (he was killed off early), but really shined as a TV director on The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bob Newhart, Sanford and Son, The Wonder Years, for which he won an Emmy.
