Double Bill: A Choice of Evils & Willie’s Last Stand

Here we offer another double bill of Allen rarities. Firstly a studio play that explores the dilemmas faced by the Catholic Church in Italy in light of the Vatican’s failure to denounce Nazi atrocities; followed by an entertaining but slight Play for Today about a working-class philanderer.
