There is a glitch on the blog – if you select a category (for example, Giallo) and then click on a post, when you try to go back and scroll down to find another post you won’t see the ‘load more posts’ option at the bottom of the screen. If you click on Giallo and then keep scrolling down you’ll see all the posts that are on the site.

I’ve no idea why this is happening and I only noticed it by accident recently…

The site may vanish at some point soon – I don’t have Paypal anymore (long story…) and it’s supposed to be renewed in September. If it does disappear… that’s the reason why.

It’s been an interesting experiment.


Welcome to One Man & His Droid – a blog dedicated to Italian cinema, with a heavy emphasis on the obscure, lost, and forgotten.

This site is best viewed as a scrapbook of information I’ve assembled over the years – usually related to films I’ve subtitled. The various blog posts will change constantly, with information added/deleted and generally tidied up whenever I get some free time and a dash of inspiration. Everything should be considered as work-in-progress.

The poster art is a mixture of web downloads and scans from my personal collection.

You cannot download films on this website, although I have provided external links to some subtitle files scattered throughout the blog specifically for films which I believe are unlikely to ever receive an English friendly release.
