Golden Madonna (Italian: La madonnina d'oro) is a 1949 British-Italian drama film directed by Luigi Carpentieri[1] and Ladislao Vajda and starring Phyllis Calvert, Tullio Carminati and Michael Rennie.[2][3] It was considered a lost film and was on the BFI 75 Most Wanted list, until a copy was loaned to the British Film Institute by Cohen Media.[4][5] Filmed on location, a group of original negatives and contact prints[6] taken by Francis Goodman are in the possession of London's National Portrait Gallery.

The film's sets were designed by the art director Guido Fiorini.


A young British woman, a former schoolteacher, inherits an estate in rural Italy. Soon after she arrives she offends the village she lives in by accidentally throwing away a sacred painting of the Madonna that they consider lucky and protector of the community. To redeem herself she goes out in search to try to recover it with the assistance of a British ex-army Captain. In Naples she is first cheated by a British Spiv and his gang of street boys, then receives their help to steal back the painting from a wealthy collector who has taken the Madonna to his villa on Capri.
