La Dolce Vita

New York: Bill Doll and Company, 1961. Two vintage borderless studio still photographs from the US release of the 1961 Italian film. Large Astor Release snipe on verso, one with "R.R. Stuart Collection" stamp on verso.

Fellini's most pivotal film, if not his finest. Unlike the more sentimental and abstract films that would follow, "La Dolce Vita" is an unflinching 7-day journey through 1960s Rome, with Mastroianni, a jaded journalist at the center of the story, constantly surrounded by revelry, beautiful women, and a beautiful city, but no semblance of happiness or love.

Winner of one Academy Award and nominated for three others, including Best Director and Best Screenplay. Winner of the Palme d'Or

Shot on location in Rome and Vatican City, Italy.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
