This book came out of conversations, conducted over the course of 14 years, between Federico Fellini, the great master director of landmark Italian films, & author Charlotte Chandler. There is generous commentary on famous actors such as Mastroianni, Ekberg, Loren & Magnani, & directors such as Rossellini, Bergman & Antonioni. Most often, Fellini speaks of the enchanting Giulietta Masina, the leading lady of many of his films & of his life. A brilliant verbal picture of the artist genius that captures the wit, allowing us to know the great director, not only the public but the private person. Photos.
