The essay concentrates on three films made by famous film director, a major Philhellene of the 20th century, Jules Dassin (1911–2008), i.e. the comedy Never on Sunday (Ποτέ Την Κυριακή) from 1960 that became most popular all over the world, also thanks to the famous song “Never on Sunday” (Τα παιδιά του Πειραιά), written by Manos Hatzidakis; Phaedra in 1962, an adaptation of Euripides’ Hippolytus (based on a melodrama written by Margarita Lymberaki), and A Dream of Passion (Κραυγή Γυναικών) in 1978, the drama of an actress playing Medea and visiting a jailed mother who had murdered her own children.
