XXII Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica (1961)
Stars and intellectuals came in droves to the Lido, as the announcer reports in the film clip: “The intelligentsia is represented by Leonida Repaci, Alberto Moravia and Pier Paolo Pasolini… Thanks to the controversy ‘made in Rossellini’, everyone including the painter De Chirico wants to see Vanina Vanini, actor Antony Franciosa and director Mauro Bolognini are also here in Venice. Paparazzi and admirers are chasing after Vittorio De Sica (…) The frenzy reaches a climax when Anna Magnani arrives (…) Jeanne Moreau and Stan Baker’s shyness is countered by Jack Palance’s brashness”.
