Boccaccio '70

Rome: Cineriz, 1962. Original program for the Italian-French film, undated but issued upon the 1962 premiere. Unfolds to three panels of film synopsis and credits, and full-color film stills of Loren, Ekberg, Schneider and others.

A four episode anthology exploring morality and love. Working-class lovers, Renzo and Luciana in a secret marriage (Solinas, Gilioli), a billboard of a blonde woman provocatively selling milk (Ekberg, De Filippo), the wife of a lascivious count struggles with her own independnce (Schneider, Milian), and a buxom carnival operator in need of cash (Loren, Giuliani). Solid composition and editing sustain an encompassing, and hilarious, portrayal of female mystique.

9 x 12.5 inches, folding. Very Good plus, light foxing and brief curling, folds slightly askew.
