Synopsis and Review
Not available at this time.

"Alessandrini repeated the success of his first film, directing Rossano, with Isa Pola and Filippo Scelzo in "Il ponte di vetro/The Bridge of Glass", even if it was interrupted, in the first phase of production, by a falling reflector that fell on the head of the young actor, forcing him into the hospital for a week."
