|AKA:||"Lo Sceicco Bianco"|
|Synopsis:||Fellini's first solo effort. A newly wed bride meets her idol from the comic pages (made with photos, not cartoons; called fumetti) and runs off with him. She soon finds he's as ordinary as her husband. Brilliant satire in charming garb. Remade as "The World's Greatest Lover." Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose of Cairo" is in a similar spirit. In Italian with subtitles.|
|Directed by:||Federico Fellini|
|Cast:||Alberto Sordi, Giulietta Masina, Brunella Bova, Leopoldo Trieste|
