Description

TUES FEB 25 & WED FEB 26 New 4K Restoration! Federico Fellini’s first solo directorial effort follows a honeymoon gone off the rails when the groom (Leopoldo Trieste) brings his new bride (Brunella Bovo) to Rome, where she drifts off in search of her titular idol. Based on an original treatment by Michelangelo Antonioni, the style and themes which made Fellini world famous are already apparent here, and the film also marks a number of early collaborations with his future stalwarts, notably a memorable cameo by Giulietta Masina and a score by composer Nino Rota. Beloved by Orson Welles, who called it his favorite Fellini movie, The White Sheik is a slapstick comedy worthy of Chaplin. (1952, in Italian with English subtitles, 86 min, 4K DCP)
