Marcello Mastroianni and Federico Fellini behind the scenes of La Dolce Vita (1960)
Cannes 1960, Marcello Mastroianni
“But Marcello wanted a script. I gave him a thick manuscript, every page blank except the first. On it was a picture I had drawn, showing his character as I saw him. Mastroianni was alone in a little boat in the middle of the ocean with a prick that reached all the way down to the bottom of the ocean, and there were beautiful lady sea sirens swimming all around it. Marcello looked at the picture and said, ‘It’s an interesting part. I’ll do it.’ ”
La Dolce Vita // dir. Federico Fellini
“You know what your problem is? You have too much money. … And your problem is you don’t have enough.”
