Good Morning Babylon (1987) Paolo & Vittorio Taviani, Italy.  In a nutshell two brothers emigrate to the U.S. and get work building sets for D.W. Griffith's Intolerance (1916).  For me the film suffered when it became overtly sentimental.  That's an issue I have with many Italian films.  Has this been on TCM?

I saw The Big Blue (1988) some time ago and my recollection is that it is mostly in English.

Yeah, some of the foreign editions include English language films if they were produced or filmed in a foreign country. Never on Sunday and Zorba the Greek are also in the Greek edition of the book and Mamma Mia! is in the Swedish edition too.
