Marcello Mastroianni
Quote:
Marcello Mastroianni was born in 1924, in Fontana Liri, Italy, but soon his family moved to Turin and then Rome. During WW2 he was sent to a German prison camp, but he managed to escape and hide in Venice. In 1945 he started working for the Italian department of "Eagle Lion Films" in Rome and joined a drama club, where he was discovered by director Luchino Visconti. He made his "official" movie debut in the film Miserabili, I (1948) and Bella mugnaia, La (1955). In 1957 Visconti gave him the starring part in his Fyodor Dostoyevsky adaptation Notti bianche, Le (1957) and in 1958 he was fine as a little thief in Mario Monicelli's comedy Soliti ignoti, I (1958). But his real breakthrough came in 1960, when Federico Fellini cast him as an attractive, weary-eyed journalist of the Rome jet-set in Dolce vita, La (1960); that film was the genesis of his "Latin lover" persona, which Mastroianni himself often denied by accepting parts of passive and sensitive men. He would again work with Fellini in several major films, like the exquisite 8˝ (1963) (as a movie director who finds himself at a point of crisis) and the touching Ginger e Fred (1986) (as an old entertainer who appears in a TV show). He also appeared as a tired novelist with marital problems in Michelangelo Antonioni's Notte, La (1961), as an impotent young man in Mauro Bolognini's Bell'Antonio, Il (1960) , as an exiled prince in John Boorman's Leo the Last (1970), as a traitor in Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's Allonsanfŕn (1974) and as a sensitive homosexual in love with a housewife in Ettore Scola's Giornata particolare, Una (1977). During the last decade of his life he worked with directors, like Theodoros Angelopoulos, Bertrand Blier and Raoul Ruiz, who gave him three excellent parts in Trois vies & une seule mort (1996). He died of pancreatic cancer in 1996.

a great and gifted actor and a fascinating and intelligent man.i have read his autobio - "mi ricordo,si,io mi ricordo".it´s full of little anecdotes and stories.bizarre and farcical sometimes like a fellini film,but also full of warmth and humour, not sharp but somehow wise!!!i almost had the chance to see him on stage.the play would have taken place one week before his death.they cancelled it because of marcello´s deteriorating health....one week later i heard on the radio that he had died....
but he left an extraordinary and unique legacy..the fellini films alone and then so many other great films-le notti bianche ,la notte,dramma della gelosia,una giornata particolare and so so many more.he had a wide range as an actor although his face and expression exuded a soft melancholy and made him perfect for dramas imo.....and then of course his voice !!!

Not only do I consider him the most beautiful man in film, he is also my favorite actor (along with Jack Lemmon!). I'm on a mission to see every film of his that is available to me. I even went so far as to get my future brother-in-law to DVR Too Bad She's Bad yesterday because I HAD to go to class. Unfortunately, I'm having some trouble finding 1967's The Stranger, which I'm DYING to see since it has Marcello, Anna Karina, AND it is directed by the marvelous Visconti!
